    DVD CD rewriter not reading disc's (Windows10)

    Hi,

    To assists you further, let me ask you:

    • What is the make and model of the computer?
    • Is the issue specific to particular disc?
    • Do you get any error message when the disc fail to read?
    Please follow the methods below and check if it helps.

    Method 1.

    I suggest you to run hardware troubleshooter to diagnose the exact issue. It will automatically detect the problem and fix it.


    • Press Windows + X keys on the keyboard and select Control Panel.

    • Type Troubleshooting in the search bar on the Control Panel.

    • Click on Small icon on the left navigation pane.

    • Click on Troubleshooting
      and click on Hardware and Device.

    • Click on Advanced on the Hardware troubleshooter dialog box and click on Run as administrator (Enter the credentials
      if required).

    • Click on Next and follow onscreen instruction complete the Hardware troubleshooter.
    Method 2.

    I recommend you to uninstall/reinstall the CD/DVD ROM driver and check.


    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Device Manager.

    • Click on DVD/CD ROM- drives to expand, right click on the device and click on
      Uninstall.

    • Once you are done uninstalling the driver, restart the computer. It will automatically install the generic driver.
    Method 3.

    I would suggest you to update the DVD/CD ROM- drive
    driver and check.


    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Device Manager.

    • Click on DVD/CD ROM- drive
      to expand, right click on the device and click on Update.
    If the issue still persist, I suggest you to go to the computer manufacturer website and download the latest updated
    DVD/CD ROM drive driver and install the same.

    Thank you.
