Hello, I upgraded an old 6910P laptop from Vista to Windows 10, 32bit , doing a clean install. Everything is working, exept the CD/DVD drive: it is not listed in Device Manager (not even with an exclamation point). I found some solutions to delete the upper/lower filter registry keys and add a Controller0 key and subvalues, but still not found.
The hardware is OK, since I can boot from a bootable DVD no problem. It's definitely Windows10 related , What else can I do to have the CD/DVD drive show up in device manager?
Hello WAWood, thank you for you suggestion, but it turned out to be quite simple: the CD/DVD drive is called "notebook multibay" in the BIOS. Once that is enabled, the cd/dvd player is detected and works just fine in Win10.
Leaves me with the questions (A) why that is suddenly a problem in Win10 (not Vista) and (B) why a bootable DVD apparently ignores that setting, but anyway, I'm up and running!
