  2. Windows Pro .... DVD not working


    Programs and features would show any software associated with burning disks etc. If it was installed.
    My DVD burner shows up in Control Panel > all control panel items > Devices and Printers, under devices. It's listed as Mass Storage Device.
    And in Settings > Devices > Bluetooth & other devices > Mass Storage Devices.
    The place to look is in Device Manager under DVD/CD-ROM Drives. See if it has a yellow ! or red X.

    dvd not detected as dvd but as mass storage device

    windows 10 does not discover DVD device

    This drive that plugs into USB does not appear in Device manager but as a separate line item

    -Initio Combo Device Class

    also, there is no entry under the "USB Bus controllers" list.

    To correct that:

    De-activate and desinstall the "Initio Default Controller" and the drivers.

    Unplug the DVD from the USB port - then power off the PC.

    Plug the DVD - and restart the PC.

    It should be OK now. It is present in Windows explorer with a drive letter.

    In the device manager:<br>
    there is now an entry for Mass storage controller under the "USB bus controllers" list,
    and a new line item for device "DVD/CD-ROM readers"
