Windows 10 – Not Detecting Your CD DVD Drive Potential Solution

Is your Microsoft Windows 10 computer operating system not detecting your compact disk and or digital video disk drive? Amazingly enough Microsoft Corporation after decades still cannot design a computer operating system that can actually detect a compact disk and or digital video disk. Anyways, this potential solution might allow your Microsoft Windows 10 computer to finally detect your optical drive(s).

You will need to have access to your Microsoft Windows 10 administrator account and password. To open a command prompt with administrator rights in Microsoft Windows 10 operating system, you can right click the Microsoft Windows 10 start menu button in lower left hand corner.

Then choose command prompt with administrator rights if listed. If it is not listed, you can type in “command prompt” without quotes into a Microsoft Windows 10 cortana search box. Now you want to right click command prompt icon and choose “Run as administrator” or choose this from a list of other options.

In a command line you will want to type this command verbatim:

reg.exe add “HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0” /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001

Also, you can copy and paste that command above that is bolded into your command prompt with administrator rights. Then hit your enter key. You should receive a “The operation completed successfully” message in your command prompt.

If you did, then you can exit out of the command prompt by typing in “exit” and then hit enter or close the command prompt window via the x in the upper right hand corner. Now you will want to restart Microsoft Windows 10 operating system. Hopefully now your compact disc or digitial video disc drive is detected.

If you receive any error messages then make sure that you are running that a fore mentioned command with administrator rights. Also, you could search the error message you are receiving into a search engine similar to Bing or Google to find some assistance.

0:01:17.400,0:01:21.180
run the command prompt as an

0:01:19.350,0:01:22.770
administrator so you would right click

0:01:21.180,0:01:28.530
the windows icon in the lower left

0:01:22.770,0:01:31.110
corner and then you will see a list and

0:01:28.530,0:01:35.689
you will see command prompt and then

0:01:31.110,0:01:38.520
admin select the admin and then say yes

0:01:35.689,0:01:41.210
then you copy and paste this command

0:01:38.520,0:01:44.100
which I will copy and paste for you

0:01:41.210,0:01:46.829
select and then copy and then I have an

0:01:44.100,0:01:51.689
administrator command prompt open just

0:01:46.829,0:01:53.670
select paste hit enter and then you want

0:01:51.689,0:01:56.610
to make sure that you see the operation

0:01:53.670,0:01:58.680
complete a successfully message and then

0:01:56.610,0:02:01.829
it will go back to a command prompt so

0:01:58.680,0:02:04.200
that worked then you want to reboot your

0:02:01.829,0:02:09.500
Windows 10 machine and it should detect

0:02:04.200,0:02:09.500
your DVD CD drive successfully now

0:02:11.489,0:02:17.349
for whatever reason when upgrading to

0:02:15.010,0:02:20.099
Windows 10 and I you I didn’t use a

0:02:17.349,0:02:23.080
preview version I used their full

0:02:20.099,0:02:26.220
upgrade version you’re running Windows 7

0:02:23.080,0:02:32.680
and then you get that little icon

0:02:26.220,0:02:35.380
annoyance perhaps begging you to upgrade

0:02:32.680,0:02:40.420
to Windows 10 which is now no longer

0:02:35.380,0:02:41.440
free and so I ran the upgrade it ran

0:02:40.420,0:02:46.900
successfully

0:02:41.440,0:02:48.310
but then my cd/dvd drive no bueno muy

0:02:46.900,0:02:50.620
mall no longer worked

0:02:48.310,0:02:53.069
