Hi everyone,

Whenever I plugged in a USB DVD rom into my laptop, Win 10 does not recognize it. I don't see the DVD-drive in my computer. I tried device manager -> scan for changes and nothing happens.
Has anyone exp this? Any suggestions on how to fix it?

Thanks.

A fix that has worked for many people is to go in Device Manager and under "IDE ATA/Atapi controllers", delete both the channel 0 and channel 1 entries by uninstalling them. Then reboot the computer. The 2 things will be reinstalled and then your drive may show up.
