Why Windows 10 Is Not Friendly To DVDs?

Windows 10 and DVD do not get along very smoothly. You must be aware of the situation if you have ever tried to play DVD on Windows 10 computers. The Windows 10 update problem exists because Microsoft has killed the Windows Media Center from its Windows 10 ecosystem. Windows Media Center allowed users to watch DVDs seamlessly without the need to purchase any additional app. Without the Windows Media Center, watching DVD has become a tough job for Windows 10 Home Theater PC users. If you have upgraded your Windows 10 from Windows 7 or 8, then you will still have a free option to watch DVDs. But there is no luck for users who have bought PC with pre-installed Windows 10.

Windows 10 users can face several issues, such as Windows 10 drive not reading discs, due to dirt in optical sensor, DVD drive not showing up on Windows 10, DVD writer not working properly, DVD not found, recognized, detected, ejecting, spinning, etc. If there is a physical problem like dirt in the optical sensor, you can solve it by cleaning. But, if you are a Windows 10 PC owner, chances are there, you may not be able to watch DVDs seamlessly. 

As a solution, Microsoft has included an app for watching DVD. It is called the Windows DVD Player. The app is not an efficient one, and the only reason for using it is if you get it as a free upgrade from a Windows Media Center-enabled version of Windows. There is a paid version of this application, which is equally inefficient and full of issues, such as playback freeze, inability to read DVDs from other regions, etc.

So, what can we do to watch DVDs on our Windows 10 devices?
