After you upgrade your computer to Windows 10, if your Microsoft CD / DVD Drivers are not working, you can fix the problem by updating the drivers. It is possible that your CD / DVD driver is not compatible with the newer version of Windows.
There are two ways to update drivers.
Option 1 (Recommended): Update drivers automatically - Novice computer users can update drivers using trusted software in just a few mouse clicks.
