    2nd way to check is to download the free program Speccy and install it, then look under the optical drives option, it should show your DVD drive listed. If it does ....your dvd drive is working as it should. Here is a link for Speccy to download.

    Here you go (if this works). The last time I tried this I "pinned" the cd/dvd drive to Quick Access and you can see it now at the top but it's still not listed under This PC.

    That's what I thought ....you are only showing the sub folders of Quick Access <----- Not showing the sub folders of This PC
    DVD drives and any hard drives do NOT show up under your Quick Access folder ....
    You need to click on your This PC folder ....and then take your screenshot of what displays in your This PC folder ...
