Question

Windows 10 DVD Player

Hello...I recently have been experiencing an issue where I would load a DVD into my drive (to play with Windows DVD player), but it always crashes when I insert the DVD. This is a recent issue, I was capable of watching DVDs a week or so ago. I googled the issue, but i do not think that Windows DVD Player and Windows Media Player are the same thing. I see lots of WMP stuff. I figure this could be an old problem that I am just now arriving upon. Any remedies would be appreciated.
