    External DVD/RW not recognized withWindows 10

    Hi Jenny,



    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.



    This circumstance can occur if the device hardware fails or if the device driver fails.



    I suggest you to uninstall the Universal Serial Bus Controller
    associated with the external DVD/RW (Cnm) and reinstall it from the manufacturer’s website and check if it helps.



    To uninstall the drivers from device manager follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X and click on
      Device Manager
      .
    • Expand Universal Serial Bus Controller.
    • Find the Cnm DVD/RW drive.
    • Right click on the driver and select Uninstall.


    Hope this helps. Please respond if you have any further related query.



    Thank you.
