We have came a long way ditching legacy components and supports. We have ditched headphone jack, VGA connectors and all other hardware that you can possibly think of. One thing that we have recently ditched is our love for CD/DVD. As computers are becoming more powerful and laptops more and more slim, we are losing the CD/DVD drive bay, and consequently the craze for DVDs.

We have pen-drive, right?

However in this age of compact storage devices. DVDs hold a special place to our heart. We still have a few DVDs holding antique memories. However, it had been found a few cases that the DVD that you held so dear to your heart suddenly doesn’t play properly.

As Windows is getting more and more modernized, it is dropping legacy support so few DVDs won’t play on Windows 10, but you need to access the DVD’s contents, either to move it to cloud storage or play it locally.

Few problems may be caused by outdated firmware of your DVD drive, and couldn’t decode the bits properly and henceforth, cause a serious playback issue. It can be resolved by updating drivers. Due to recent drop or damage or mishandling, the DVD can be damaged physically. The other part is strong encryptions to prevent playback in different devices and regions. Either all or one of these cases can result to DVD read error.
