BMW workshop manual DVD compatibility issue

A heads-up:
The BMW R1200S workshop manual on DVD does NOT appear to work on PC operating system series Windows 10.

(Apologies if this issue reflects a repost)

Are you trying to play the .iso, the .rar, the .nrg or the actual DVD? It won't play as an .nrg natively on windows.

It's working ok for me.

Mine plays fine on Windows 7. I forget the file type. Tried Autoplay and the file with Roundel logo.

Good to hear Windows 10 works for you. Will retry. Thanks.

It sounds like you may just need to install software that's not native to W10 like it was on W7 and you'll be back in business.

Mine has been working successfully on windows 10, although some updates seem to upset the install and require a fresh install to operate again.

My genuine DVD copy (purchased MAX BMW) has a frustrating background glitch, claiming it’s been registered against 2 other PCs and I have 1 licence (PC) left. I raised this issue with Max BMW, if they couLd escalate with Corporate BMW for advice but never heard anything more. I have wondered if the key had been hacked and used elsewhere. You are left wondering if the thing will ever work when you REALLY need it. Would be good to have a PDF copy as a backup to the interactive DVD.
Good luck!
