First attempt to use, I get the info "not powered". Won't read any discs. Ckd hardware devices... get info (Microsoft): device set for "safe removal" and to unplug and replug device. What? This is not a USB device! Do I have to open the laptop and scrounge around until I find a cable? Surely not....
Solved! Go to Solution.

BTW: Everyone else probably aready knows, but this is an OEM drive made by Hitachi - LG Data Storage (HLDS) and has been around for a number of years. There seems to be a long history of problems with it, and many regard this as a really cheap unit. I am disappointed in Lenovo for choosing such a cheap device.

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad edge bought some 10 years ago, and its DVD does not play DVD disks. It doesn't even recognise the DVD in the Explorer menu. However the player will 'see' mp3 disks, or cd disks with installation programs, such as the Microsoft Word installation cd's.
Does anyone know how to get it to play DVD's?
This Thinkpad started as a Windows 7 64, but now Windows 10.
The problem was also as Windows 7
