    Error in DVD player


    So I was watching a DVD and paused to get up to drink some water. I come back and see this:
    Error in DVD player-utter-nonsense.png


    This is utter nonsense as far as I am concerned. Someone on this forum has to know what it means because I have no idea. After all, no one should need a Ph.D. in computer science to know why something isn't working. Also, this is my first time watching a DVD since the Windows 10 Creator Update which caused some problems with other things utilizing the display drivers. No problems before so-called upgrade.

    These are only my ideas & thoughts. They may be inconvenient, but see if they may help:

    • I would probably watch that DVD video off YouTube, if you can find it there... if it's a commercially released video, not a personal video.
    • Think about using free software to convert your DVD movies to video files to save on your computer, which should always work no matter what; you won't get that error.

    Additional idea that isn't too inconvenient:

    • Try this app to play your DVD movies, does it give you that same error: Home · MPC-HC

    Hi there. Did you open the draw, close it, and try again?

    How is this actually helping the OP fix their DVD issue? Watching the movies elsewhere does nothing to fix the DVD drive.

    @allam447635, frustrations aside, we need a bit more info...

    • Is it a DVD or Blu-Ray?
    • How old is the drive?
    • What video was this?
    • It is a copied version or original?
    • Did you try playing the movie again; did the same thing happen?

    Hence the reason why I stated that first line:

    It is a DVD.
    As far as I know there is no way to tell how old the drive is but the copyright year on the case is 2003.
    It is a DVD of The Elegant Universe.
    I think it might be a copied version but I can't tell.
    I tried playing the movie again, the same thing happened when I tried to pause and resume. Never happened before Creators Update

    Also, this is only a problem in the built-in Windows DVD Player. Other software works fine.
