Re: wont play dvds
This is mainly because Windows has dropped its support to provide Windows Media Player's built-in DVD codec for Windows 10 and above. To a large extent, Microsoft sees that the market is decreasing needs for a DVD drive, not to mention DVD playback service.

hi insert another dvd. if same happens then restart the computer and try once more . ..again fails please reinstall the driver or shutdown the computer . open the cabin unplug and reconnect the code to dvd drive
Try Media player classic under k-lite codec pack. Then open video files on the dvd. If it doesn't help try another codec player. If nothing helps could it be that dvd player is not capable of multilayer dvd reading.
You can install another DVD player software.
there are plenty of free players on the internet that you can download, or you can buy one at your local software dealer. Once you install this, the newer video codecs should be installed
Sounds like you need a DVD decoding software, ie... winvid, interdvd, and powerdvd. Windows media player will play some DVD's, but many DVD's, especially newer ones, need an additional decoder in order to work. You will be able to find the software at filehippo.com, download.com, or IBM's support site. Keep in mind that burning software, ie... nero, roxio, and dvd shrink, have decoders in order to burn the DVD, so they will work as a decoder in conjunction with your media player.
desoshade is right, its probably a lack of software for playing dvds, if your dvd burner may have come with some if not you can try goo media center for free and its legal (its an open source application) I believe you can find it on sourceforge.net, VLC media player may also help, but more than likely you need a codec that supports playing dvds, they do exist for windows media player but they may not all be free, free alternatives do exists though with and without breaking any laws. MPlayer classic may also be useful, its been a while since I've had to deal with this sort of thing, usually watch movies on my mac or tv anymore hope some of this is useful. good luck.
are you trying to play DVDs from a different region ?
PC DVD Drives, are region set to the computer, if you have a region 1 dvd drive, trying to play region 2 dvds et,c. it won,t let you. theres a couple of ways around this. go to Afterdawn ( on the web ) and download a region free dvd device.
Solution 2. try to obtain any updates or re-install windows media player. suggest player version 9 or above.
Mike @ compurepair.
p.s finally is to check that your drive, indeed supports DVD Or certain types of dvd media. i.e DVD+ Or DVD- some only support One type.
