Updating old windows cd

This is unfortunate since many users still depend on CDs and DVDs.In fact, you might even need to use a DVD drive to install Windows 10 on your computer.Windows 10 does not include native DVD Playback, neither does it support Blu-ray media.If you want to do this in Windows 10, you need to install compatible software that supports your optical drive.Boot to the Windows 10 desktop, then launch Device Manager by pressing Windows key X and clicking Device Manager.

If you don’t want to purchase software, you can check the manufacturer’s website to find out if they have supported software you can use to view your media.You can also use the option to Update Driver Software from within Device Manager.Another option you can try – I notice this works for many users – involves removing and reinstalling the IDE/ATAPI drivers.Press Windows key x and choose Programs and Features. If your CD/DVD drive isn’t detected by Windows, make sure the drive is working and recognized in your computer’s firmware.Check out our article for instructions on how to load your BIOS or UEFI firmware interface.
