what media player to use to watch DVD movies using an external drive DVD on an Acer laptop with Win 8? Tags: External Drive DVD Laptops Graphics Aspire Acer Last response: November 24, 2013 4:52 PM in Graphics & Displays Share LindaV November 24, 2013 4:43:42 PM I have an ACER Aspire S3 laptop with an external ASUS DVD drive. Sometimes when I plug it in a player automatically appears but often not (like now). I do not know what player to use or where to find it on my system. (Is this another Win 8 problem?) Any advice? (sorry, I'm not sure what category this should be in) Thanks.
