HQPlayer CD drive connection lost

@jussi_laako or other HQPlayer users,

I am running HQPlayer (version 3) and Roon on Windows 10. I have an external USB CD drive. The drive is functional and I have used it for other purposes. The drive appears correctly as E: in HQPlayer but it does not respond when a CD is loaded. I was able to use the CD feature in HQPlayer on a previous Windows 7 system. I have tried running HQPlayer as administrator as I had to do that to get DBPoweramp to read the drive in Windows 10. Any thoughts on how to correct this? Thanks.
