    Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

    So, the Fall Creators Update has been released yesterday, but I haven't even been prompted for the Creators Update yet. My pc is not that old, bought it last summer. I have no idea as to why I'm still running version 1607 or wether it's safe for me to upgrade
    to either one of these newer versions. Will it screw up my drivers if I do? I am running Windows 10 Pro btw.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    I understand. What multimedia player are you using? Have you tried updating your drivers? We recommend that you
    run the troubleshooter
    and check if there are any changes. To run the
    troubleshooter, follow these steps:


    • On the search bar, type
      Troubleshooting
      and hit
      Enter.

    • Choose
      Hardware and Sound.

    • Under
      Windows
      category, click on
      Video Playback
      to run the troubleshooter.

    We'll be waiting for your response.

    Regards.

    No DVD Drive?

    Yes, if your DVD drive is not shown in Windows Explorer, there are a number of things you can try to fix this.

    Please check in the Device Manager to see, if the drive is still listed there. I assume that it is not.

    Second please check in the BIOS to see, if the drive is still listed there. I assume it is.

    If both of my assumptions are true, then here are a number of possible solutions:
    [FIX] Optical Drives (CD/DVD) Icon Not Showing in My Computer Window - AskVG

    Note that some of these tips include changing the Windows Registry. Wrong changes in the registry can basically screw up your PC. Make sure that you have a system restore point before you start changing things and make a backup of any value, which you change.
