    I recently re-installed Windows 10 to address several bugs and irritations that had built up over the months and my laptop is now running well.

    The problem I have is that File Explorer no longer recognises that I have a CD drive. If I put a CD / DVD into the drive, Windows simply does not acknowledge that there is anything in the drive. Can anybody suggest a solution please? I have tried the solutions that Microsoft suggests, but without result.

    Not sure exactly what solution Microsoft recommended but you might try this and see if it works.....

    Right click the start button and select Command Prompt (Admin) and in the Command Prompt window type
    reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001
    Reboot the system
