Try downloading MPC HomeCinema or VLC for movie playback. Not sure if they'll work with encrypted DVDs, though.
I believe you're correct and dixonge has provided a link.

Thanks dixonge, it would appear that it will work with DVD but not Blu-Ray, I'll have to read more into it, but I don't see a clear answer to Blu-Ray and windows 10.
I still don't understand they they install the hardware, but not the software on a complete PC system.
