I Have a Toshiba laptop, windows 10
 
My drives are Local disk C, Kingston D, and DVD RW Drive E
 
I have a number of older CDs that I try to see what is in them but unable to do so,  Right now I have a DVD/R in the drive but unable to see what is in it.     I have missing pictures and I know the CDs I have have the pictures on them.      How may I read what is in my CDS.   I also have a bunch of CD/RWS.  Thank you.  Anna Ruth

Can you play/see the cd's in another machine?

 

On your Win 10 machine can you see them if you use VLC player?

 I have the same problem with Win 10 and VLC not reading data files. Movies play just fine, but it just doesn't see any data files.  Can ANYBODY propose a solution?

The best thing to try is to read them on another machine.  It may be the disks themselves that are the issue, and not the drive. Optical Disk Life Expectancy varies due to many different factors.

The disks are of varying ages, but in every case the disk is readable on another (Win 7) PC.
