So i have an external optical drive. Its an Asus external slim optical drive. When i plug it in, its detected. When i put in any disk however, the lights would just blink for a few seconds and nothing happens. I've used it for my windows installation so i'm not sure whats exactly wrong. I've tried changing the region to the correct one but it still doesnt work.

It may simply be that it's not currently set up to Autorun/Autoplay when disc is inserted:

Control Panel >>> AutoPlay

Alternatively, insert a disc in it, give it time to spin up, then double-click on the relevant drive icon in Windows Explorer.
