Most of the time I cannot get DVDs to play.

HP Recommended
Example: Pavilion 6530HPLaptop 17 by 3'xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I do not know how to get drive 😧 to play {run} my DVDs.  Sometimes it works, but I have not found a consistent setting. I suspect that I am the problem, but a solution evades me.

IF it was simply hardware or software, then it would either always work, or always fail.


IF it is intermittent, that implies that the laser lens is dirty and sometimes has problems reading some disks.


You need to look online for a DVD laser cleaning kit.  The contain a disk with tiny plastic fibres on it such that when the disk spins, the fibres rub against the laser lenses and clean them.
