Solved!

windows 10 dvd/cd drivers

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My PC has a Hitachi GH40L DVD/CD which has worked fine in Windows 7 but is not recognized by Windows 10.  It will boot from the CD but does not show up in the Device Driver.  I have gone through the Regedit process of removing the Upper & Lower Filters and have removed and replaced the drive.

I've managed to find the fix for my problem.  This might be a help to others with the same problem.  Enter the Command Prompt as Administrator and type:

 

reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001

 

Then reboot and the drive should now be discovered by the Device Manager and work perfectly.

I understand that Microsoft discontinued DVD playback support but my Windows 10 does not detect the DVD/CD device.  It seems to me to be a different problem.  The Device Manager does not show the DVD/CD and none of the problems, of course, can detect it.  The BIOS shows the DVD/CD device and will boot from a CD but Windows 10 does not detect it.
