    I have tried to use my cd/dvd on my desktop pc to install my printer and when I insert the cd/dvd it says for a moment on my pc screen on the bottom right on Windows 10
    select to choose what happen with removable drives

    Then if I look in that drive on the pc via file explorer it'a as if there is nothing on that disc,but I know there is and it happens on every disc.could anyone help me please?

    You can try to clean it with a cd-dvd cleaner disc. Or, as they're fairly cheap, replace the drive.

    Does it happen if you restart the machine with the disc in it?
