    Windows Media Player 8.1

    Is tghere a way that I can play DVD,s & CD,s on HP Envy laptop, I have a Toshiba USB SuperMulti drive Model PA3834A-1DV2 connected into the USB port all I get is the green light flashes for a couple of seconds then nothing.

    I have tried VLC but have to fiddle with it to get a picture, not happy with that, does anyone know of a better way, I don't mind if I have to buy an App

    Thanks in advance for any help
