    My DVD player on my Windows 10, Dell laptop was working fine a few weeks ago, but I put in DVD today and it says ' D:\ invalid value for registry' and DVD doesn't play.

    I don't have a clue what to do. DVD player must be in contact with rest of computer because when I looked in DVD player functions it has the name of the DVD I have in there. I tried with a few CDs that worked before.

    I went to Computer Management, then Disk Management and it says name of DVD for D: , File system UDF, and then under Status it says Healthy (System, Active, Primary Partition)

    Under that it says
    CD ROM 0
    DVD
    Then name of DVD I have in player

    When I go to DVD RW Drive D:\ it has name of DVD I have in player

    When I go to Device Manager it says DVD/CD drives, This device is working properly.

    I don't see how it can be working properly if it says invalid value for registry

    Dowload and try another video player, like VLC. Or open it via Windows Media Player instead Movies & TV.
    That's an app error, it will fix by itself on next app update

    even the other DVDs and CDs didn't play or open?
