Asus USB Blu-Ray Drive Not Showing Up After Windows Update

After upgrading/updating to the latest version of Windows 10 (20h2) my Asus USB BluRay Drive has disappeared, it's not in This PC or Disk Management or Device Manager...

However something strange is listed in Device Manager:

I've never heard of Initio Default Controller before nor appear to have any devices by that name connected to my computer so I did a little research and the way to fix this issue is to do the following:
  • Disable the Initio Default Controller in Device Manager (right click etc)
  • Right-Click the disabled item and click on Properties
  • Click on the Driver tab
  • Click on Uninstall and uninstall it (if prompted, click the checkbox to uninstall the drivers)
  • Remove the Asus USB BluRay drive from your computer
  • SHUTDOWN (not restart)
  • When your PC has finished shutting down, reconnect the USB drive
  • Power On your PC and it should now be working OK
