Windows 10: Win 10 does not see files on CD/DVD rom Solved

    Win 10 does not see files on CD/DVD rom


    I performed the upgrade on Windows 10 after installation I was trying to install office 2007, the DVD rom drive is seen by win 10 because I can eject the disk but no files to be seen in explorer and it won't auto start despite all the settings.. I have changed the auto start to: ask me, run always then back to auto all to no avail. I have also tried my Gigabyte disk to load the drivers for the board, same thing. I do get an occasional "directory name invalid d:" where d:\\ is he DVD rom drive.

    I need the computer to load my 3D program, if I can't resolve this I will scrap win 10 and reload win 7.

    Correction to the process


    My first time editing the registry; and it wasn't difficult.

    If I could add to Bob's instructions, however, Line 6 should include New; it should read

    6. Right-click on Controller0 choose New and select DWORD (32-bit) Value

    I had finished my message by saying that it worked for me. Well, it did once after a Restart. But only once. Changing back to 0, or even to 2 or 3 (I was just guessing) brought no benefit. The machine will read videos and audios but not data files.

    What is clear and consistent on my machine is that starting in Safe Mode allows any DVD to be read. But that is a crazy way of resolving the issue.

    Any suggestions?

    I had exactly the same issue. Trying to open an Office 2007 on a Windows 10 machine. Your solution worked a treat. Thanks ever so much!

    I had the same problem and I was able to fix it.

    My question is - Why doesn't Microsoft fix the problem in an update? Or is there a good reason that they haven't?
