Boot to the Windows 10 desktop, then launch Device Manager by pressing Windows key + X and clicking Device Manager. Expand DVD/CD-ROM drives, right-click the optical drive listed, then click Uninstall. Exit Device Manager then restart your computer. Windows 10 will detect the drive then reinstall it.

Hope that helps :thup:

People still have DVD drives.  Haven't used one in years.

Thanks guys , yep still use occasionally . The drive functions fine , it's on the bios, you can put a dvd or cd in it but windows doesn't see the drive so you can't use it .  f***ing weird.
