    Disc drive doesn't work on Windows 10


    I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 a few months ago. Yesterday the disc drive stopped working. I put in a disc I had made which contained various data, mostly text. When I clicked the D recovery drive nothing happened. In the past I would see a list of the videos on the disk and by clicking one of the items I could play it on Movies and TV. Now that doesn't work. I can play videos that I've downloaded and are in my videos file, but not videos from the disc drive. Anybody got a solution for this? I have an HP Pavilion slimline desktop computer.

    Nothing should happen when accessing the recovery partition except maybe show files on it. Since that partition has a drive letter your ODD/Optical Disc Drive should show as E:, F:, G:, etc. Will it read other discs? ODDs have an annoying habit of dying when least expected, part of that may be due to the heat produced from the laser lens in them.

    Yes, I understand. My E drive has a question mark over it. When I click it I get an error message, "Drive E is not available..."
