    Try a clean install of Win10. You have nothing to lose except the effort.

    Look at that, nothing wrong with the laptop, right?

    Windows uses controller driver to make any attached peripherals works in its environment. For this, it is the IDE ATA\ATAPI Controllers, you will need to update this driver from what have been installed by Windows setup.

    If your ASUS A53Z is an AMD based chipset, download the updated AMD Chipset Drivers. Download 32-bit or 64-bit. Run the downloaded file which will extract the files to your hard drive and may update some drivers, reboot when done.

    Now, can you see the drive yet? If not, the driver installer might not update the controller driver and we have to do it manually.

    Win + X, choose Device Manager
    Expand IDE ATA\ATAPI Controllers, right click on Standard SATA AHCI Controller and click Update Driver Software...
    Click on Browse my computer for driver software
    Browse to where the AMD installer extracted the files, it should be C:\AMD
    Make sure the box for Include subfolders is checked then click on Next
    It should update the driver and rename it to AMD SATA Controller
    Click on Close and reboot.

    Thanks Private.
    Really appreciated, got my DVD drive back. Followed your instructions, the automatic install didn't work followed you manual instructions and hey presto now got my Drive back.
    Thanks a million, I did have thoughts of throwing it in the trash, but now I am glad I did not
