You must forgive them. So many people did not slay the bogey man living under their bed as a child. Thus they feel him everywhere, hence the need to always carry a gun. Living in fear of the bogey man is a heavy burden for people to carry. So sad.

That is what shocked me. Even with anydvd windows 10 would not play a dvd. I bought this laptop about a year ago. I am so glad I tried to play a dvd before I took this thing somewhere looking to entertain my self with a movie or two. Now I downloaded a codec pack that came with a movie player. It needed anydvd to play the movie. Two other players came preloaded on my laptop besides the window media player. Neither of them would work even with anydvd. My question, when did all this stupid crap start. Fifteen dollars for a player that will play dvd's on your pc. That will probably be subject to upgrade charges as they constantly change encryption schemes.

Use VLC Player

I will not answer a PM if I think the question should have been asked on the forum.

This is very interesting. I haven't tried it since I boot the Win computer so infrequently. It is hard to believe that Microsoft would put out a new OS with no DVD player built in. Is there no media player in Win 10? That is bizarre.

What I read this morning was that Media Center simply wasn't compatible with the new OS and would have required a major rewrite. I suppose that if they get enough flack from the proles that they will either introduce a new version as an upgrade to 10 or add it on when they bring out 11. Maybe they will just produce one for sale to compensate for the lost revenue of giving away 10 for free.

I am going to try VLC. When I was researching this problem I did come across that solution of VLC, although it was reported it is not fully functional with windows 10. My anger was just the fact that something as simple as playing a DVD on a computer had become a problem for Microsoft's programmers. Then when their help pages lead to an Microsoft approved 14.99 player I saw the light and agree with Thumb. "Greed". Then again windows 10 was free.


I have come to the conclusion that windows 10 is for the young and much younger generation. It does function more like a cellphone in respect to how much personal information it wants to collect and share across many apps(which use to be standard) and between many companies. People need to realize that the word sync is a synonym for "No Privacy"

Windows 10 may be free but the way it is written MS will make millions on software sold to be compatible with it. I've already spent over $400 to replace perfectly good software that is not compatible. Even with MS Office I can not use my old Excel files and I had to get a converter to make convert all my old files over to Office 2013. I hate MS with a passion and whenever I can I will use something else other than one of their products.

I fully understand....... and for all the reasons you stated is why the pc is dying. Who wants to pay for new and backward compatibility, every four to five years.
