Clean installed win 10 and now i just found out my dvd drive isnt reading anything.
so before i go to the service center i figured i might aswell ask here first.
has anyone else noticed this? am i missing a driver?(i dont believe i saw a disk drive driver on asus' site but i could be wrong)
or is this probably a faulty dvd drive.
bad part is i cant actually confirm if it was working on win 8.1 before i upgraded since i had no use for it then tho i was able to install a few games a few months ago (6-8 months ago??)

i have same problem with my with my G751 with W10 , Auto Play for some reason does not work in W10 on my G751 , i have to manually open the DVD Drive to play DVDs or install software from the drive.
When u put media in the drive a pop up should appear in the top right hand corner. then u select what u want to do with the media. in windows 10 in search lower left hand corner , type auto play , a list of options will appear see if auto play is ON. For some reason In W10 there is no option to Select the DVD drive in auto play . Whom ever had a hand in W10 development forgot this option.

i wish it was the same for me but mine doesnt read the disks at all and it thinks its empty
i also noticed makes a sound as if its spinning up then going to a stop a few times before giving up

do u have DVD player software? or burning software ? if so try to to load a disk and manually open the disks , mine spins also but I must manually load the disks in W10 with software ,
u can also go to Device Manager and check the drive , in sure its W10 Auto Play

I confirmed that the drive is indeed set to autoplay
and tried to see if cmd would read the disk and it seems like the drive itself is failing?
