G50 - DVD Drive Auto-Play Problem

Hello.

 

I have a G50 notebook running Windows 10. The internal DVD drive does not appear to autorun any disk that is inserted (CD/DVD/Data, etc.). Whenever a disk is inserted, it spins for about 10 seconds or so, but then nothing happens. All the "auto-play" settings appear to be correct. When I manually open File Explorer, then the associated programs run, but only when I do that. I've applied all outstanding updates from both Microsoft AND Lenovo, but no change.

 

At first I presumed it was a Windows problem and did a full system recovery, but also no difference. After doing that, I connected an external USB DVD drive and that works just fine. When I pop a CD or DVD into the external drive, it automatically runs the associated program right away. Only the internal drive requires me to manually open via File Explorer.

 

Does this clearly point to a faulty drive? Any other possible causes/solutions? If any other information is needed from me, I'll gladly supply it. Thank you in advance. Smiley Happy

Thank you for your response. I double-checked and triple-checked. All the settings are correct.
