  3. DVD Drive repeatedly missing

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    My PC is ASROCK ACPI X64 and the DVD drive is optiarc DVD RW AD 5240S.

    I have tried all your methods from 1 to 3 but none solved the problem.

    Method 1 Step 5

    Run as administrator not available

    Method 2 Step C

    Expand DVD/CD rom drives Not visable

    Method 3 Step 3

    Corrupted files found but not all fixed

    All updates have been installed.

    Any new suggestions?

    Regards:

    WINDOWS 10 - dvd drive disappeared

    Hi Geoff,



    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue.

    • Do you receive any error code or prompt?
    This issue could occur due to some corrupted or incompatible DVD/CD-ROM device driver in Device manager on your system.

    Let’s try to Enable "show hidden device" and follow these steps below:

    Since you are unable to locate the CD/DVD in device manager, I would suggest you to try the steps below to enable hidden devices in device manager and check if it helps:

    1. Press Windows key + R to open the run command.

    2. Type devmgmt.msc and press enter to open device manager.

    3. Click on "view" and select "show hidden devices".


    If the issue still persists, try to refer to the suggestions given by Sangeeta Sarkar, replied on November 25, 2015, to fix your issue.
