Solved! LG - UP970 dvd player connect to laptop issue

Dec 9, 2018
I have a digital disc (old school) that I want to add to my digital library. I have a laptop with an hdmi port. I was trying to connect my blu ray player to my laptop via the hdmi to upload digital disc onto my itunes account. my laptop does not have a dvd drive in it. Does anyone know if this is possible? I have tried connecting the two with an hdmi cord but the laptop doesn't show anything is connected. Does anyone know how to do this?
