Customer Question

I have a Super Slim DVD Portable Writer p/n 31785700, model DVDRW8X-U that I purchased a few years ago. I have it connected up to my Surface Pro 3, but it doesn't play anything when I insert the DVD and slide the drawer closed. The light on the front of the drawer flashes, but nothing displays. What do I need to do?

If you go to Computer, does the DVD drive show that a DVD is inserted?

You can download VLC Media Player here to play the DVD; http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html
