Why will my LG SP80 slim portable DVD writer not play DVDs after installation on my Surface Book?

Views: 702 Replies: 2
I installed the disk drive with CyberLink Media Suite 10 for DVD (that had come in disk form with the drive) on my Surface Book that has Windows 10 installed. The CyberLink program opens with did the whole Autorun thing and I had also downloaded Media Player for Windows to play the actual DVD with. I instructed my computer to open the disk with Media Player whenever a disk was inserted but it does not play the movie. Can I play the movie on CyberLink Media Suite? When I open the disk drive file on My PC, it just has a bunch of files from 1999. Does this make any sense?

1999 date means unknow date (on Win8.1 it wrote 2006)

Win10 hasn't right license for playin dvd inside (it expired on 8.1) so a free app can do the job
