    Disappearing dvd drive


    When I hook up an internal hard drive in win 10 my DVD drive disappears . Cant find it in explorer . The second hard drive takes the D letter and no DVD rom is shown . When i disconnect the HD the DVD returns as D drive . Any suggestions . SATA connections on everything .

    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.
