Hi Groovydude, i have tried getting VLC to read my dvds, I run Windows 10 Pro, but I keep getting an error " Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///E:/'. Check the log for details." however I can never find a log file to check it out. From what I've read its something to do with the upgrade to windows 10 and a conflict or something with the optical drive? Any advice? I absolutely hate windows 10, in my opinion windows 7 is far superior. Because of the upgrade, my integrated graphics card is incompatible, though I'm getting it to work with a driver for windows 8 and my favorite game is useless and its incompatible with windows 10.
