Software for OEM DVD Drives?

by CardsFan29 / March 1, 2009 5:01 AM PST

Since OEM DVD drives aren't bundled with the kind of software that the retail versions are, where can one go to get the equivalent software so that the OEM DVD drive can play all the necessary media?

VLC PLAYER.

If you need to record, these titles are nice enough and free.

I have heard of IMGBurn, but I had no idea about the others.

Thanks for the info!

I learned about 3/4's of them from these forums by people sharing the names. After that, a trip to a search page and these bubbled to the top of titles I use.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
