Windows Central Question

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
