Hopefully, these tips can resurrect your optical drive.

If you still cannot get the drive to work or show up in Windows 10, you can consider rolling back to your previous Windows version to see if it makes a difference; or consider purchasing a new drive.

One of the common complaints I have encountered among users is the loss of their DVD or CD drive after upgrading.

This can be a result of a combination of factors: corrupt driver, out of date firmware, or a factory defect.

If you don’t want to purchase software, you can check the manufacturer’s website to find out if they have supported software you can use to view your media.

Third party software such as VLC Player might work with your media, and it’s free too.

If you see your optical drive listed in the BIOS, that’s a good sign.

If you don’t see your CD/DVD drive in the BIOS/UEFI, then something is definitely awry.

You can also use the option to Update Driver Software from within Device Manager.

Another option you can try – I notice this works for many users – involves removing and reinstalling the IDE/ATAPI drivers.

Installing the latest chipset driver may resolve the issue with your optical drive not working properly or not being recognized in Windows.
