    Open VLC, goto the first tab "Media" and select play DVD, that should work.

    Open your app list, scroll down to M "movies and tv" is the default player for WX... does that work?

    I have "Films & TV" which only allows me to purchase films to watch, not play my own DVDs :(

    I can't find a "Media" tab? I have the 1.6.0.0 version and can only see Home, Video, Music and File tabs.

    None of the apps of Windows 10 plays DVD's. It has been removed from the Mediaplayer, your copy of Mediacenter has been removed during the upgrade and 'Film and TV' app only plays what you bought

    But there is VLC free of charge, and maybe you own PowerDVD or Nero DVD player or...
    and they all play your DVD's very well

    If you open VLC you will see on top

    VLC media player
    Media Playback Audio Video Subtitle Tools View Help


    1. Click on Media
    2. than select Open Disc and navigate to your DVD or the Video_TS directory

    Hope this helps

    @N14, I just wanted to know if the app will play as that proves your g-card is working so then the problem is VLC player or the file is somehow corupt.

    To be clear, the default WX app is "Movies & TV" and this app CAN play files that have not come from the Microsoft store... the store folder is just the default location to look for stuff guys.

    Select as many new folders as you like from any location on the network that your computer has permission to go and they will be added {as well as sorted} in the same script type that itunes uses.
