  2. Drive won't recognise disc - "Please insert disc into drive D:"

    I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop - bought in 2014 - with Windows 10, and up until today the disc drive has always worked perfectly. I came across some old discs from around 2002 which have photos from that time stored on, so i decided to insert it and have
    a look. Most of the files were JPG or AIV, but as I opened the files, most of them wouldn't open, only some, it kept saying it couldn't open the file or that it wasn't a recognised file format (JPG). Same with the videos, although it came up with an error
    message saying contact Xbox support if it wouldn't work?? I know the videos are of my family when i was younger, in 2002, same with the photos. I was wondering if someone could explain why this was happening?

    But my main concern is that after that disc, I decided to try some other ones to see what's on them, but they were all empty so it doesn't matter, but I picked up one I knew had more photos on it, and when I inserted it into the drive, it didn't start playing
    automatically like normal when there's something on a disc. Infact, when I looked at the DVD RW DRIVE in my file explorer, it wasn't coming up with anything like how much space on the disc. So i pressed that to get the disc drive information, and my drive
    ejected and a message came up saying "Please insert disc into drive D:" I then decided to try discs like The Sims 3, which i know work because I use it frequently, and it didn't recognise it either. Now up until today my drive has been working perfectly and
    now all of a sudden after trying other discs out, it wont recognise them anymore.

    I tried looking for error signs in the Device Manager, looked at the properties - it said it was working correctly,, checked for updates - all were installed,, trouble shooted - couldn't find any problems..and then I uninstalled the drive and restarted,
    the drive was installed again when it came on, but it still won't recognise discs.

    Could anyone please tell me what's gone wrong, what I can do?? Thank you

    I think it is rather unlikely that the drive failed at exactly the same moment in which you did the OS upgrade. If you ask me, I think this is some kind of software/driver problem in your Windows 10 installation.

    According to what the device manager shows, the drive should at least be recognized correctly - which does not mean that it will also work correctly. When you double click the drive, what does it tell you about the device status? Does it say the device would be working correctly or is there some error?

    For the unknown device, you can double click it, go to the details tab and view the "Hardware IDs". These IDs are an identifier for the according hardware.

    Hi jaydenvo! DVD drives wear out just like any thing else. They are fairly cheap and very easy to replace.
    My DVD drive reads but won't write. Looks to me like yours died. Some times you can blow them out with a can of compressed air.https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...problems/en-us
