    Hi, a good number of people have experienced this - me too on one PC. Always worth searching the forum for possible answers.
    Here's one of many such threads that should help.

    1. Run Command Prompt as an Administrator. (E.g. Windows key + X, Click Command Prompt (admin) )
    2. Copy/type the following and enter

    reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001

    3. Reboot the system
    My DVD drive was then automatically recognised. Yippee."

    Did you go to File Explorer
    Should show up as D drive
    Also in Device Manager
    If none work then do a
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

    Or an SFC Command
