WINDOWS 8 MEDIA PLAYER WILL NOT PLAY A LEGITIMATE DVD ? WHY

My Toshiba laptop is new & window 8 media player will not play a DVD , only a CD - How can I resolve this problem ?
WMP will not ever play DVDs. MS removed this capability. You can play inside of
Windows Media CENTER if you have Windows 8 PRO and get the free (until 1/31) WMC
is taking people a week or more to get product keys).
 
You might want to try the free VLC player.
