Why such a long time to interrogate a cd drive with MY PC

Need -a- Clue
Last Modified: 2016-09-17
I have Windows 10. This problem began with all of my computers that have Windows 10. When I insert a cd or dvd into drive D a progress bar comes up and will take up to 85 seconds to complete. This is even if there are only ten files on the cd. I am guessing that all Windows 10 machines are doing this, but I hope not. I have 85 discs to go through and more fully document their contents. This will delay me significantly. Is there any way to cut the delay down?
