    no auto play with anything in dvd drive win 8.1


    This is a fresh install every thing else seems fine (so far) except there is no auto play when it's set to and also, I can't rent a dvd movie and watch it cause it won't play no matter what I try Thanks for all advice/info.

    Goodie, I never liked WMP and always used third party players.
