Windows 10 just isn't mounting external USB DVD drives :(

Post by skank » Sat May 19, 2018 12:03 am

Windows 10 just isn't loading external USB DVDs :(

I have tried 2 drives, Samsung SE-208 and a brand new Patuoxun drive and no joy, it just won't mount.

Anyone else having this and more importantly know the fix.

Windows 10 17134.1
Cubase 6/8/9

Thanks in advance

I had an issue whereby W10 wouldn't play any DVDs, turns out a third party media player is needed. I installed the VLC player, that worked for me, maybe worth a shot? You can get it here: https://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html
Cubase Pro 10 x64 with jBridge | WaveLab Elements 9.5 | i7 5930K @ 4.7GHz (stable) | ASUS X99 Pro | 32GB RAM | | W10 x64 Dual Boot on 2 SSDs plus 3 SSDs for samples and project/audio files | Fractal Design Define R5 case | Noctua NH-D15 | ASUS GeForce GT 730 2GB silent | Vox ToneLab SE | Mackie HR624 MKII | 2 x UAD2 Solo PCIe | RME HDSPe AIO | 2 x 24" LED monitors...
