Hi,

 

Thank you for choosing Windows 8 and welcome to Microsoft Community Forums.

 

I see that after installing Windows 8, the DVD/CD-ROM drive will not read DVDs.

 

I understand the issue and will point you in the right direction to resolve it.

 

However, please answer this question:

 

1.   Does the issue occur only in a particular DVD?

 

I would like to inform you that Windows 8 doesn’t support DVD playback.

 

Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro don't come with DVD movie playback capability. If you're running Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro you can search for a DVD player app in the Windows Store.

 

If you have Windows 8 Pro, you can buy the Windows Media Center Pack that includes DVD playback.

You will need to install third-party software to play DVDs in Windows 8.

 

Hope this helps.
