Did some research and settled on Express Burn (free) because it's simple
and does what we need. I successfully burned the CD on my desktop.
Confirmed that by taking it to another desktop.

However, I cannot PLAY it on my desktop. Even though I burned it there.
So far googling has told me to uninstall/reinstall the device. I don't
think that's the issue, seeing out I burned it.

I'll keep googling.

No joy.

I should have mentioned - these desktops with clean Windows 10 installs
will not recognize DVDs at all. As in not read. As in you try Windows
Explorer and it simply asks you to put a disc in. That's it.

Well, I learned something new today.

MS has removed the ability to read / burn CDs and DVDs from Windows 10.
If
you upgrade from Windows 7 that ability stays, but a clean install it's
not
there. We got our first 2 clean installs recently to that's how I found
that out.

We don't use DVDs much, basically once a month to burn PDF copies of all
the months invoices (don't use USB because they can be erased).

The PC store said use VLC media player to listen to audio. Use CDBurnerXP
to burn audio. Neither does what we want. The PC store says the MS stuff
is no longer available.

Before I have to install a smorgasbord of apps to get what we used to have
right in Windows, is what used to be in Windows for free available? At a
price?

And MS wonders why people get pi$$ed at them.

Thanks.
