    I really don't think it will go that far. I mean you can still get your floppy drive going if you want too.

    No dvd drive in 10

    I installed Windows 10 as an upgrade to Windows 8. My Dell laptop does not see the DVD drive. I had no success getting the drive to work in Windows 8 and (maybe of course) it doesnt see it now. This seems to be a common problem I have tried numerous fixes but have not had success. What is the latest and greatest solution?
    Try: command prompt as Admin.

    reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001

    hit enter

    exit command prompt window
    reboot

    I had same problem on 2 computers, both now fixed.:)

    I'm having the same issue:

    I just bought a new PC because my Windows 7 PC crashed. Now I have Windows 10. My c/d drive doesn't show up when I open File Explorer and it doesn't open a window to give me options when I insert a cd. I have to tinker around for an hour and then, magically, it appears! I have no idea what or where I went or did to make that happen. I am frustrated beyond belief when I come to places like this that post pages of "solutions". Isn't there ONE solution to make my computer know there is an "e:" drive in there? Sometimes it seems like people are guessing, because the solutions don't work... or there are different causes for the same problem?

    I am not very technically savvy, but I did manage to uninstall the driver and restart my PC, but that didn't help. I am not ready to start editing in the registry. And how do you know when someone instructs you to write a line that it's correct or that it's not posted with malicious intent? If Windows 10 is the greatest, why can't it just recognize a simple RW cd/dvd drive???
