Hello and welcome,

 

Do you see the media in Windows Explorer?  Can you launch the setup or start the movie that way?

Only see file explorer. Drive and files on CD and DVD show up. I wonder if I need to but windows DVD software ? I downloaded free software and can see the video with a watermark. The vendor wants to upgrade T $6.99 a year. I might as well just buy the windows program. Do you think that's the problem? Thanks

Windows 10 intentionally disables AutoPlay for security reasons. It was just too easy to propagate viruses using AutoPlay.

 

If you trust the data source, you can enable AutoPlay. See e.g. How to Enable, Disable, and Customize AutoPlay in Windows 10

VLC Media Player for Windows is free and is capable of playing DVDs.

CDs are no longer large, so it's normal to create ISO files of CDs so that you you can keep them on your hard drive.

ISO files can be mounted in Windows 8 and 10, so that you can use them.
