  1. Windows 10 not recognizing discs


    My PC has a built-in disc drive, but Windows 10 will not recognize when I put a disc in. This means that no window will pop up for me. This also means that Windows Media Player will not recognize a burner if I'm trying to burn a CD. It's like the disc drive doesn't do anything. I've tried several different fixes but none of them worked for me. What do I do to get my computer to recognize discs?

    :)

    Windows 10 does not recognize Disc Drive


    After installing Windows 10 (I had 7 before), my computer does not recognize the D: Drive at all.

    I have a Lenovo H410 Desktop (Lenovo Windows 7PC).

    My scans show that all my drivers are updated, but there does not seem to be a driver for the disc drive.

    Is that what I am missing? If so, could someone suggest where I obtain it? I have tried the Lennovo website, but am having some trouble getting to the drivers.

    Thank you.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
