Very annoiying that I can't play cd's from the dvd player,if I install the vlc player would I be able to watch movies and listen to my cd's?

 

There are so many places to get this vlc player,which link would be safe without downloading junk along with it?

 

Thank you very much!

I installed it but how do I get the cd to play? How do I open the right file for that?

I did get this error message (VLC is unable to open the MRL 'cdda:///E:/'. Check the log for details)

​?????

Thank you..

To play your DVD's, open VLC and click on "Media" - "Open Disc..." and choose your DVD-player.

 

Greets!

When you insert a CD, does anything happen on the screen? i.e do you get a popup asking what you want to do, etc? You should be able to play CDs without any extra software, and if you can't, perhaps there is a fault with the player, or a driver is missing or corrupted.

It still didn't work and I got the same message:VLC is unable to open the MRL 'cdda:///E:/'. Check the log for details. ​I did change setting in auto play and don't know the correct settings , I figured most of them should be clicked in the vlc setting?

 

​thank you so much for your help..

Nonsense, it comes with Windows Media Player. I just popped in audio CD in my Windows 10 test machine (I wouldn't dream of downgrading from Windows 7 to 10 on my main PC), it asked me what I wanted to do with an audio CD, and the choice was use Windows media player or "take no action." I suspect your CD player is broken. The driver might be a problem and it might be possible to fix this by reinstalling it.

After removing the ATAPI driver (under DCD/CD-ROM drives), I would suggest restarting the computer and it should reinstall this driver.

Windows Media Player is included with Windows 10 as it has been with other versions of Windows "forever."

 

The issue you're describing sounds like a hardware issue.  I've just seen Mr. Pollard's last post and it could also very well be a driver-related issue, and that would be the first thing to look at.

 

P.S.  The generic answer for, "Where is the safe link to download {piece of software X}?" is from the official website for {piece of software X}.  Almost any time you use a search engine to find a specific piece of software, one of the first items returned almost always has the big "Official Site" tag shown on it in the results.   One should always go to the source when the source actually distributes a given piece of software.

Just be careful when doing searches as the top "results" are usually ads. I actually got stung with a search for VLC  and clicked too quickly, and found I'd downloaded some adware, fortunately I killed the install as soon as I smelled a rat. A Google search is generally safer as you can see more clearly which are ads. If you use the AVG or Norton search, though, they tend to use something else such as "Ask" - which is a terrible "ad-infested" search engine, and you often have to scroll way down to get the real search results.

I have been using DuckDuckGo for some years now for a number of reasons, a big one being that they do not track your search history.  The last time I used Google it did the same thing as DuckDuckGo in that it uses a big, bright graphic tag that reads "Official Site" for what is definitely known to be the official site for a given product.  On Google, there are ads but they're clearly identified as such.   I guess I presume at least a modicum of caution on the part of anyone who'd even ask the question that was posed.  I'll still stand by my generic answer if the reader is exercising reasonable precaution, which includes paying attention and not just clicking the first thing they see (which is a sure road to madness over time).

Yes, I wasn't criticising your suggestion, after all, you have to find out what the official link is, somehow!  With my regular customers, I usually send them a link by email, which also has it's problems, as we tell people not to click on links in emails. However, as we live in the real world .. :-)

Hopefully I didn't install bad stuff from the link , I'm sort of afraid to download it again..

 

But I got a cd to play,not a burned one,maybe the burned cd's and dvd's don't play in windows 10?

How can I check if I have malware from the link?
