    CD/DVD not showing on file explorer

    I noticed that on my W10 build, that the cd/dvd (Drive D: in my case) does not show on file explorer. However if I put a blank disk or a disk with data, it will show. This behavior is different than Win7, which always shows the cd/dvd drive. Is this a problem or feature??

    Been like that since at least Windows 7. This should be the setting you are looking for,

    UPDATE: Did uncheck that block, (file explorer options) rebooted and the DVD is still not showing.
