Should be able to just open computer, right click on the drive and select play.
That's what I tried many times but when I click on D: its just transparent and not clickable and when I select Run D: it says insert disk even though I already have a disk in the disk drive
SVT, are you trying to watch a movie or play an audio cd? Windows 8 does come with Windows Media Player, but does not include the codecs to watch most movies. For that you need to purchase the pro pack. You can always, though, download VideoLan Player and use that instead.
I was trying to install a disk that came with my PC with drivers and other stuff and even when I physically inserted the disk into drive it did not work until I added in command prompt reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x000000001 and only then I am now able to use my disk drive but only by manually opening and closing the disk drive but I still cannot control it from my desktop!
