    "MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ8E2 S" is not being recognized as operable.

    When I open Device Manager my DVD/CD-ROM drives are missing. I have to, view - show hidden devices, to see it. Once that is done I get this error.

    I verified that the CD-ROM is in fact connected and spins up when a CD is inserted. I do believe that this happened after an update or a new software installation occurred. A system restore is out of the question. Does anyone know how to deal with Windows 10 drivers or where to find the one I am looking for to try and reinstall a corrupted driver? What process should I take to try and correct this issue? Do you think the drive is bricked?

    Hi there

    I think that's a "Panasonic" drive -- simply re-load the driver.

    You can go to the driver Tab and uninstall device. Then it should re-install the driver itself.
    The driver is in Windows 10.
    Also try
    Settings > Update & security > Troubleshoot > Hardware and Devices > Run.
