Windows 10: Where did the DVD drives go

    Where did the DVD drives go


    Hello!
    A strange one for me. The DVD drives do not show except on Device Manager or Disk Management. SO NO DVD Drives in File Manager.

    Suggestions are greatly appreciated.
    Thanks and make sure that you have a great day!

    File Manager = Windows 3.x

    Frequently an ODD/Optical Disc Drive won't show in File Explorer until a disc has been loaded.

    I understand but they do show up as drives on five other Windows 10 machines. All are x64 bit!

    I'm having the same problem on my wife's laptop. It is a tsstcorp DVD RW on that laptop and google searching shows lots of problems with that brand and Windows 10. Insert a disk, select the properties for the drive in device manager and look at the volumes and it says (erroneously) no media inserted. Can't get Windows 10 to recognize there is a disc (data or DVD) inserted in the drive. Sorry I don't have a solution, but that's what my problem is - and probably yours - Windows 10 not recognizing a disc is inserted.
