CD/DVD drives causing issues with new PC

    I use Audiograbber or Sony SoundForge Audio Studio and do not have any issues with ripping from either of my two SATA CD/DVD drives. Same way I do not have problems burning with either Nero, Imgburn or CDBurnerXP, they all "see" all of my drives.

    I never did find a solution to this. Am I to assume that Burrrn is incompatible with Windows 10? It sees only my BD-ROM drive - it does not list my Lite-On DVD burner in the list of available drives. I used to like that program but it refuses to see my DVD burner now on Windows 10.

    Nero Infotool detects one drive - the DVD-RW drive. It doesn't "see" my blu-ray drive. Burrrn is just the opposite.

    VSO Inspector sees and lists both drives.
    Kprobe 2 sees and lists both drives
    Opti Drive Control sees both drives.
    Nero Burning Rom sees my DVD burner. It may not list the BD-ROM drive because it's not a burner.
    Imageburn sees my DVD burner. It may not list the BD-ROM drive because it's not a burner.
    Even the ancient DVD decrypter program sees both drives.

    I guess Burrrn is just broken for me?

    Windows 10 64-bit

    any good solution(s) yet?

    I sure haven't found any ...
    And, my problem actually got worse ...
    As windows 10 began installing updates, it seems my workaround solution no longer works, so I'm back down to only one optical drive accessible (the plextor) in any application.
    I can see both drives in Windows and Devive Manager says they're fine.
    But whenever I put a disc into the Asus drive, File Explorer opens and the little window that says "Insert a disc" appears.

    Can I get a membership card - I ran into this problem also.

    No real solution but I do have a "workaround".
    I have a two optical disc desk top that ran windows 7 64-bit for years.
    I used CDex for ripping and burning activities. I could open individual instances of CDex for each optical disc.
    I updated to Windows 10 64-bit a few days ago and found out CDex would only open one optical disc; multiple instances would only open the same optical disc.
    I use the latest CDex (v1.81) that is supposed to be compatible with Windows 10. At least three previous versions back have this same behavior (I tried them)
    SO, I tried an alternate software, Fair Stars CD Ripper, which I've also seen good feedback about.
    Same behavior - even multiple instances can find only one optical disc.
    My workaround is this:
    I use CDex v1.81
    I open two instances.
    In one instance, I open "Settings" and change the setting (doesn't matter if it is selected or not, just change it) for "Use Native NT SCSI".
    Like magic, the selected optical disc changes to the other unit.
    Then I proceed to do whatever activities I planned with the discs.
    Once I close the instances, I have to reuse this same "trick" to use CDex on both optical discs again.
    Painful and disappointing, but workable.
    "My" opinion is this rather STRONGLY suggests Windows 10 has some fault or at least a significant difference to Windows 7.

    FWIW, my optical discs are Plextor PX-B320SA and Asus DRW-24B1ST-i.
    Old, but extremely reliable workhorses.

    Hopefully somebody out there (Microsoft, are YOU listening?) steps in with a REAL solution.
    Makes me wish I was a programmer sometimes instead of a hardware jock.
