    Thanks for suggesting the https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...5-cdd01d56e2f8, I tried it and unfortunately it didn't work either.

    Go to Start/Search and type diskmgmt.msc, right click the diskmgmt results and Run As Administrator, in the Elevated Disk Management Window in the lower pane, if your DVD drive is showing, right click it and choose Change Drive Letter or Paths, choose a different drive letter that is not being used.
