    Troubles Creating Virtual DVD/CD-Rom On Windows 10 Pro


    For several days I have been trying to create a virtual DVD/CD-Rom that is active/visible 24/7 in windows explorer even if there isn't anything mounted to it, the same way I have done for years... up until the dreaded move from Windows 7 to Windows 10 (Pro). Nothing works. I've tried several programs including Daemon Tools (won't run on 10), WinCDEmu & Microsoft Virtual CD ROM control panel. I know all about mounting ISOs, creating ISOs and converting to and from ISOs, that's not what I'm trying to do.

    I just activated Hyper-V for some other reasons and haven't looked into that. Is there the ability to do this there?

    Anyone?

    :)

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern, I would recommend you to manually update DVD/CD-ROM driver from the
    Device Manager.

    Step 1: Please refer to the following Wiki article created by Andre Da Costa on
    how to Install and Update drivers in Windows 10.

    How to: Install and Update Hardware Drivers in Windows 10

    If the issue persists then follow the below method.

    Step 2: I suggest you to uninstall the DVD/CD-ROM driver from the Device Manager and check.

    Follow the steps to uninstall the driver.


    • Right click on Start button and click on Device Manager.

    • Search for DVD/CD-ROM driver and expand it.

    • Right click the device, and click Uninstall.

    • Restart the computer.

    • Right click your computer name in Device Manager and click
      Scan for hardware changes. Device manager scans your system and automatically reinstalls your device.
    If the issue still persists then, I would recommend you to download and install the latest DVD/CD-ROM driver in compatibility mode from the manufacturer and check if it works.

    Regards.
