it simply used to play a dvd once inserted, if you only insert dvds to watch them, keep it. if you insert dvds to make backups and dont watch them, take it off.

Runs at startup and background for DVD autoplay of proprietary media devices. Better off without it: disable disc player, remove process from Task Mgr, delete .exe file from Program folder. Where superceding applications can associate data type to drive, replace the run file within properties and re-enable unit through Device Manager. Test for operability, then uninstall program files, folder and OS/registry breadcrumbs.
