Windows 10: External Optical Drive from Old Laptop Not Working

This is on the UK eBay but is what I bought for my Blu Ray burner from my old laptop.
My LG Bluray-Burner (internal) has been disappearing for the second time. It appears under hidden items in Device Manager (under Properties, it is claimed that the drive is disconnected), but not as a drive letter.
