Hi tonllwyd :)

Windows 10 cannot play DVDs by default now, Microsoft removed that feature since the Media Center is gone. If you want to play DVDs, you have to buy their app that cost around $15 in the Windows Store, or simply install the free and excellent VLC player.

Folks who had Media Center on the OS they upgraded from can get the DVD player for free from the App Store. The caveat seems to be that it's not available if one has done a clean install, as the traces of the old program would have been destroyed.

Of course. But, for folks like me, who play one DVD every two years, it's an easy option.
