Windows not detecting cd but other programs do


Feb 20, 2017
I'm having a really annoying problem with Windows.
When I insert a disc into my drive, the program that I want to use with the cd recognizes it no problem, but Windows seems to have other ideas. Explorer opens and a message pops up telling me to insert a disc, while also ejecting the disc before I can do anything with it.

So to sum this up: Windows doesn't detect my cd and it ejects it, while another program does detect it but can't do anything with it because Windows ejects the cd.

I hope you can help me!
