I would prefer to have my DVD player fixed
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
No

Okay we can work on your DVD drive. This was most likely caused by the Windows 10 upgrade deleting the driver needed to operate the drive. Right click on the Windows icon located on the left end of your Taskbar and select Device Manager and let me know when you are there.

My computer says I have the best driver installed. I tried uninstalling it, then reinstalling it again. Nothing seems to work. I downloaded VLC media player, then tried to play a dvd and the player couldn’t open the input, whatever that means

Have you tried other discs?
