    DVD drives will no longer recognize discs after the latest "update"

    I have two DVD-RW/CDR drives that will no longer recognize valid discs since the latest Windows 10 update. I upgraded from Win 7 just over a month ago, and they seemed to work fine. The system information shows that they are good drives, but they consistently eject valid discs and ask for a proper disc to be inserted.

    ? Anyone have any ideas?

    Hi, just a thought which may be of no use.. I found autoplay settings had been changed when I installed the anniversary upgrade. Whilst people had found autoplay not working for optical media previously, it does seem to now (after a simple well-known registry mod not unique to Win 10). You might like to check those settings.

    I haven't seen that personally.

    This may not be a fix for your problem, but I expect that it's some sort of bad Registry entry:

    Win 10 does not see files on CD/DVD rom

    (I haven't had a problem with an optical drive since I was running NT4 on a work PC 15 years ago.)
