DVD Plays without an open Program

When I insert a DVD into my drive it automatically begins to play audio only. I cannot see any picture at all. The main problem is there aren't any programs open and I can't stop it from playing. Can anyone help me with this or had a similar issue?

What type of computer do you have? What type of DVD is it and does it do the same thing with others? I was thinking if the DVD has audio on it, it might be auto playing the audio only. Do you get a window asking what to do when the DVD is inserted?

Try holding down the shift key to see if anything changes.

Go to Control Panel, Autoplay and look through those settings.
