Can you please try the following?

1.) Click type the following in the search: "Troubleshooting". Click Troubleshooting in the results.

Now click programs in the window that appears. Under media player run the library troubleshooter. After that completes, run the settings troubleshooter. Then run the windows media player DVD troubleshooter.

2.) After those finish, Restart the PC. Now try to open windows media player.

Did that solve the issue?

No video DVD, No CD? Even not audio CD? Can you boot from a bootable DVD (to test if it works outside WIN7)
Open windows file explorer->click on "computer". Does it show the CD/DVD drive?

Is it possible that 'auto-play' is unchecked ?

I have bought a LITON (DS-6E2SH) blue ray player for my laptop and it is working fine in so much as it will play DVD's and CD's but I can't play blue ray disks because media player doesn't support them. Does anyone know whether there is any good software that will support their play back.
