How do I get to play a dvd on my dell inspron 14

Hello,
I have a new Dell Inspiron 14 laptop computer with Windows 7. In order to play a DVD all I needed to do in my old computer was to put a DVD into the disk drive and I would get a choice on the screen as to which media player I wanted to use and after I made the choice I could see the DVD. I put my DVD into the disk drive now and nothing is happening. What should I do?

  1. Can you click on the Computer icon and then click the dvd from there? Or try opening Media player and see if you can play it from there.
  2. Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

    1- What program is the default to open DVD?
    2- Do u already have the codecs for play DVD?
  3. If you want it to auto-run go to start-> Control panel -> Programs -> default programs -> change autoplay settings. Then go to DVD movie and click the drop down menu. Select 'Play with Windows media player'
  4. download VLC, install and don't mess with WMP
