After a decade of use on a Mac, I have switched to dBpoweramp on a Windows 10 machine today. On my first attempt at using it, I get the error message <no CD drive found>.

The computer can see the (external) drive in Windows Explorer. According to Device Manager "This device is working properly." It's the same drive I was using on my Mac.

I have no security software, apart from that installed by Microsoft as part of Windows.
