    dvd drive isn't recognised after windows 10 upgrade

    My dvd player drive isn't listed and when you try and play a dvd the player spins but doesn't play anything since upgrading to windows 10. I have checked in device manager and it says device is working properly. I have also done the upgrade driver and it says I have the latest driver.

    Microsoft provides the following support page for this issue:


    I think you will need to apply their fix no 5.

    A quick way of doing it is:
    Right click the start button and open an admin command prompt and paste this in, hit enter and then reboot;
    reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001
