    Hi guys I have been working with Old Guy Geek about my DVD player that won't play. on windows 10. I would like to thank him for all his help, With OGG's help, and after installing the VLC media player I have narrowed the problem down, by checking in the 'device manager'. that tells me that my hardware device (DVD player) is disconnected from my PC (code 45) and to now re-connect it!! the problem now is I don't know how.- any ideas??

    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
    hit enter
    type
    exit

    Glad it worked.
    As for me...... I had the identical problem, when I upgraded my wife's computer to Windows 10, that was very early on in its' availability and as a consequence there wasn't a lot of info available, so.....
    After hours of searching, I came upon this particular solution. I tried it and it worked so now I pass it along.
    I wish I had made note of the original source so I could attribute it properly but unfortunately I did not.
