Windows 10: E drive problem

    E drive problem

    Every time I put a previously burned CD in the E drive, it won't open it and insists I put a disc in the drive. Any idea what the problem might be. The CDs were burned using the Windows & on my old computer. It also won't let me use any new CDs to burn to either.

    The drive may have failed. Does it play bought audio CD discs?
    The lens may require cleaning, use a CD/DVD lens cleaner if you can’t access the lens or use a cotton bud/stick dipped in isopropyl alcohol or methylated spirits & gently wipe the lens if you can.

    Uninstrall the drivers from device manager and reboot, always worth a shot. Best thing to test i=with is a bootable DVD such as a windows install disk also if you have one :)

    To Bastet, it never did play CDs on it, I'm told there's no software in Windows 10 to do that. I see what I can do with the drivers. It has opened the CDs before, but not all the time. It tends to just push them back out.

    Windows Media Player & Groove will play commercial (music) CDs & both are included with Windows 10. It’s DVD playback which isn’t included. :)

    The E Drive doesn't appear to work at all. I can't even send items to it to burn. It will not acknowledge having any discs in it. I just checked the properties on the E drive. It says the capacity is 0 bytes. What does that mean?
