    No. It was a deprecated feature along with the Media Centre and Windows 10 Setup would remove it if upgrading from a Media Centre edition of Win7/8.

    There are free alternatives. I used to use DVD Maker with Windows 7, but switched to DVD Styler when I took the free upgrade to Win 10. I use the Portable Apps version.

    The ability to play DVDs was removed too. For that I use VLC Media Player.

    Hi there

    for PLAYING DVD's especially on remote TV's install KODI. Will actually play more codecs than the normally excellent VLC and will play direct .iso DVD ripped files too. It will also play .mts files captured from some video capturing devices when you want to copy SKY GO / AMAZON PRIME / NETFLIX stuff to HDD (although you have to do this in REAL TIME with an HDMI splitter --doesn't work on UHD TV yet but will on full 1080p).

    I stack up a whole slew of stuff to play overnight and capture it all on HDD for playing later. I then can delete from SKY Q box to reclaim HDD space.

    For HDMI splitting use a CHEAP generic chinese / taiwanese one something like Isolem-- this will split off DRM and pass video / sound to the capture device. The expensive ones retain DRM so you don't capture the video !!!!. Note you need HDMI v2 for this --these splitters usually accommodate that version of HDMI in their hardware and you need the proper HDMI cables of course.

    can't help you though on CREATING DVD's.

    Cheers
