    When I try to write a disc with my DVD Drive in Windows 10, it says the blank disc needs to be formatted. It's a Maxell 4.7GB DVD-R blank disc, and I've never had to format them on any other Windows machine. What do I do?

    :)

    Dvd drive not showing


    Is this the HP 15r014tx in your system specs? If so, try the steps in this thread....
    https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebo...r/td-p/6186456

    It may be that your DVD drive has a hardware failure (as was suggested in that thread).

    DVD Drive issues.

    The games used to run, now apparently the disks don't even read.

    Go to Device Manager and remove the DVD
    Scan for hardware changes and update driver as OS suggests

    Still not working?

    1) Clean the heads.
    2) Run a diagnostic program on the drive.

    Nothing else has changed about your system aside from the OS?

    Revert to XP Home, assuming you don't find the source of the problem in steps above.
