Windows 10: DVD drive not showing in File Explore. (Im really tech savvy).
The DVD drive should not appear in Device Manager under 'Disk drives', it should be in a section of its own called 'DVD/CD-ROM drives'. It has been incorrectly identified as a disk drive. As a consequence the Disk Management screen is trying to treat it as a hard drive, it should be listed in Disk Manager as 'CD-ROM 0', not 'Disk 1'.
Try right-clicking on the 'PIONEER DVD-RW DVRTD11RS' entry in Device Manager and select 'Uninstall'. Then use Device Manager > Actions > Scan for hardware changes. Hopefully it will be recognised correctly second time round.
It may not though, others have reported that the AMD SATA Controller driver may need updating in order for the DVD drive to show. See this thread...
AMD SATA Controller Windows 10 Driver | Community
Could be a corrupt driver, bad cable or the drive itself may be bad. I would go to device manager and remove the driver then do a restart. This will reload the driver. If that doesn't work I would try a new cable. If it still doesn't work I would suspect that drive went bad.
Run cmd as admin
Copy the following and paste in to cmd window
reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001
Should be fixed
