I upgraded to Win 10 some months ago.  Right away I encountered the problem with playing movies -- VLC fixed that, works fine.  Now I have the annoying situation where the system sees the DVD drive, driver is up to date, and Device Manager shows it as working properly.  However, File Explorer will not display the files list!  Hopefully someone here has a fix(?)

Am I the only one with this problem?  Does no one have a solution?

Does the drive read anything?

 

The drive may have failed and that is your issue.  I'd recommend replacing the drive.

As stated earlier, I can play movies with the drive thru VLC.  Device manager says the drive has latest driver and is working properly.  Is the data-read capability separate from video?  IOW, could that function be failing now? 

 

I appreciate the reply and have no problem with replacing the drive if that will fix this problem -- I really need to be able to read this data!

It was a failed (failing?) drive.  I replaced it today with an inexpensive LG GH24 -- that solved the problem!
