I just upgraded from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 8 Profesional and and having issues with my DVD-CD Reader and burner, it reads properly cds but not dvds does any one know the solution? I tried looking for any new drivers for it on Toshiba because It's on a all-in 1 Desktop. would really appreciate it. Same as for an external HDD, Tauro Desk Pro, on Windows 7 worked fine now nothing says it's unavaible.

Hi, Windows 8 no longer natively supports DVD playback. You should use a program such as VLC
