    Hi Mikelori5, welcome to Ten Forums. Why don't you try changing the drive letter of the DVD drive to another letter like E or H and see if that solves the problem. Use disk management ( + X and click on disk management) scroll down to your DVD drive and Rt click on it. Click on change drive letter and path , change, use the scroll box to change the drive letter click ok.
