Dvd won't play on HP Pavilion

HP Pavilion Notebook 15.6" HD Touch Screen Product # X7S46UA#ABA
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Hi, I have a new HP pavilion.  I tried playing a dvd in the drive. It recognizes that there is a dvd in but will not play the movie. Help!

Sense Windows 8 Microsoft has removed the DVD codecs from Windows.  Try downloading VLC Media Player from here and playing the DVD using it.

I tried the fix mentioned above. It didn't help me. My computer keeps telling me to insert a disk. It apparently doesn't see the disk at all.
