Q: "I have been trying to get my Zoom Player to play DVD's once they are inserted into my CD/DVD drive. Problem is, when I go to Start >Default Programs > Change Auto Play Settings, and I select the arrow to choose a program under DVD movie, Zoom Player isn't listed as one of the media player options to choose from. Any solutions?"
