Windows 10 preinstalled compute stick wont play DVDs or read data CDs. it recognizes the drive but it wont find the DVD or CD normaly. the same drive and DVDs play fine on my windows 7 and Mac machines.
It is necessary to use an external power adapter to connect the DVD or CD player to the compute stick. They usually require more current than USB hubs bring.
If you plug the DVD or CD player to the stick without the USB hub, you will see it, as recognized in your display.
In regards to the application VLC player; I downloaded the latest version and installed without any issue. Please review the image below.
