The cd/rom drive is not working as it should. It will play music cds but not run installation disk for installing software. I think this may have happened after W-10 update from W-7. I now have W-10 with anniversary update.  (Loving W-10)...As far as I can tell this is the only thing not working, I have searched, but to be honest, I just don`t know what and where to trust updating drivers safely. It may or may not be a driver issue.....Thanks for any advice...Jim

Give the W10 section a shot, many issues discussed up there.

Will do...Thanks  ...At the risk of showing my ignorance...Does C/D drive need flash to read and install drivers that are supplied with programs...? C/D does not read these disks on two updated desktops.   I removed flash from both pcs. Reading all the advice on flash problems, I an trying to do without Flash.....Thanks again....Jim

Flash player has nothing to do with optical disks, it's content oriented and I consider it strictly an Internet application.  In the minds of many, it's also a security risk that is unnecessary.  I know of no reason to assume that flash is needed to install drivers.

 Just eliminating another possibility...I did get the drivers needed for Logitech Web Cam and HP 4380 printer from manufacture website. The main reason I am trying to get this C/D issue fixed is for maybe a no-boot situation (recovery Disk) later on. I learned much from the link you furnished ...Thanks for your reply....jim
