[qanda]This question is published in the hardware section for the LG GH20NS10.

Hi and Welcome!

assuming this converter has its own power supply, there shouldn’t be any problem to recognise the drive with Windows built-in drivers (there are no others).
Please check if the unit is recognised with other computers using this USB adapter.
You may also try different USB ports.
