DVD play back problem. I upgraded from windows 7 Home Premium to windows 10 Home Premium. The dvd drive plays cds and shows the dvd files on the dvd disc but will not play a dvd movie. I tried reinstalling the driver for it, no luck. I tried several dvd movies, no luck. Lots of people on mickeysoft's website are having this issue. They say the upgrade took out the video player that was a built-in program  in windows 7 so download the player again, no luck. I'm thinking windows software problem somewhere? Registry error? I tried several free video programs, no luck. Thanks

As you have already found out, Windows 10 does not offer DVD playback vs Windows 7 and the excellent Media Center which is sadly missing from 10.

 

You have an excellent free alternative to Microsoft's DVD software for Windows 10 which would cost you $15.
