    dvdrw no working

    I have 2 DVD-RW drives in my tower, ever since I upgraded to Windows 10 they have not worked, I looked Device Manager and both are shown and it also says that the drivers are functioning properly,no problems found there. When there are no discs in them they show up in my PC, after I insert a disc in one and open my PC, that drive and letter are not showing and also the flashing light on the drive never seems to stop flashing. I have had this problem ever since I upgraded to windows 10. I have searched the internet but have only found 1 option, that is to reinstall Windows 10. To me that is not an option, because if I have to do that then I will just reinstall Windows 7 and forget about windows 10. I have had nothing but problems with windows 10. I am really considering going back to windows 7. Can someone please help as I am at the end of my rope and I am also frustrated with windows 10.

    I made the changes to the registry as per georgeks and I still have both dvd drives listed in device manager, but still neither one works, they both worked in Windows 7 pro, and neither one works in Windows 10. The Device Manager says that both are functioning correctly. I double checked the the registry key that I add and everything appears correct.
