DVD/CD Rom driver for window 10

My PC needs a good DVD/CD Rom driver after upgrade to window 10.

I have tried couple of it but none worked smoothly with window 10.  Does any one knows where I can get a good driver that can work with window 10 well? My DVD burner/player device is old, but still working very good.

Thanks

Alex

Hi Auggy, thank you for response to my question. please see my answer below:

I use Window  10 Edge. The system dose not recognize my DVD machine. Simply no drive indication. So I download  a DVD driver  from LG website. But is doesn't work, and I cannot find a good driver from Sony website. Now the computer works  without a DVD drive. The current problem is  that the computer shutdown unexpetly , repeatedly whenever I play an online  video. All other types of work the computer handles  as good as usual and as long 10 hours consecutively.  

Also what computer (or motherboard) do you have (make/model)?

My pc is home made. is a AMD phenom (tm) II4840 processor, 3.2 GHZ

What DVD/CD Rom drive (make/model)?

It's a Sony product. 1960's model. I tested it on my friend's PC working fine.

Try the following and see if the DVD/CD Rom appears:

Right-click the Start button > Command Prompt (Admin)

Then, at the command prompt type the following ( you can copy and paste) and press "Enter":

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

Restart the computer.

Also, for the computer shutting down unexpectedly can you see if the following folder exists and if there are minidump files in that folder:

C:\Windows\Minidump

Hi Auggy, following your instruction the command

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

was added to window successfully.

After a rebooting of my pc I still don't see a cdrom drive indication in This PC. I'm thinking about to replace the old DVD machine with a brand new one. Pls recommend one from current market for me?

I see a cdrom.sys file in Winddow32/driver. the creating time is 2016. Is there a new versionthat I missing? where I can get it? 

No minidump file can be seen in my PC so far.

Thanks

Alex

The cdrom.sys is the correct driver and should work for any optical drive, internal or external.

The cdrom.sys is included in Windows is dated June 21, 2006 and there is no newer version at this time.

If you could provide the following information it may help to see where the problem is:

Windows Key + R > type msinfo32 in the "Open" box  > OK > File > Save > then save as an .nfo file

Then make the resulting .nfo file available via a public folder on OneDrive or similar site.

Also, can you do the following:

Windows Key + R > type eventvwr in the "Open" box > OK > expand "Custom Views" and then right-click "Administrative Events" > select "Save all events in Custom View As" and save as an .evtx file

Then make the resulting .evtx file available via a public folder on OneDrive or similar site.

Here's a link on using OneDrive:

In the right window scroll down to "Windows Event Log" and double-click on  "Windows Event Log"

What is the "Startup type" and "Startup status" ?

Hi Auggy,  I'm happily to tell you that my CDRom problem has been solved. Actually I did do much though just all of the sudden I see my CDROM drive "D" is back! It's a magic, isn't it ?   All I did is down load a  free DVD player from internet  to replace MS DVD Player then every thing works fine. Of course all the instructions that you taught me are necessary and made things happen.

Thank you very much

Alex
