    Dvd drive not showing


    Is this the HP 15r014tx in your system specs? If so, try the steps in this thread....

    It may be that your DVD drive has a hardware failure (as was suggested in that thread).

    DVD Drive problem

    It worked and was listed in Windows 7. I upgraded to Windows 10 and it is not in the list of drives. It is an LG brand of DVD drive. How do I get it in to Windows 10 list of drives? Place a dvd in it the drive plays it for 10 or so seconds but Windows
    10 does not register it.
