The CD format is enhanced, and the DVD format is created, and the DVDs have a higher capacity and speed than the CDs. DVDs were the most popular media storage media before USB arrived. With the ease of use, many of the DVD users have led to using USB devices, and DVD readers have been phased out for some media players as well. But DVDs are still in use, and the Windows operating system must use several methods to play DVDs media. In this guide, we are talking about how to play DVDs on Windows 10 operating system.
