Re: Differences: Win 10 on 2 computers, no DVD drive displayed.

Peter Tesar

On the PC that does not recognize the DVD drive, there is an audio/music disk inserted.

"This PC" shows Local Drives C: and D:. No DVD drive.

In the command prompt, I typed the followingon the command line:
vol e:
vol f:
vol g:

In each case the message is:
The system cannot find the path specified.

I tried the search box using the Windows key:
The message is:
cannot communicate with the scanner, ...

From the run box using Windows+r I get:
E: is not available, be sure the drive is connected..

I no longer have access to the DVD drive on the one computer. The other computer shows the DVD drive in "This PC" but the auto play still does not work.

See if windows can find it.

Or go to run, which is still windows-r and type in the letter of the
DVD drive--presumably but not certainly d:.

Good luck!

I now have Windows 10 and the latest JAWS 17 installedon 2 computers.

On the desktop, "This PC" displays the local drives. On 1 computer,
the DVD drive is displayed while on the other it is not.

I cannot access a DVD if it is not displayed in "This PC".

The other problem is that, since upgrading to Windows 10, the auto
play no longer works on both computers.

use auto play for all media ...
is checked.

Any ideas? Thanks.
