So I'm 99% sure this is software based, as the reader still shows up when I go through BIOS and will spin the disk and eject disks, though sometimes it takes a bit to get it to eject disks.

Basically, for the last few months my CD/DVD reader won't show up anywhere in win10. Nothing in device manager.

I'm using an MSI GE62 Apache Pro-004

Any help is much appreciated!


EDIT: It's a Super Multi DVD Writer, model GUD0N

I have. I've also looked at the hidden devices. I doubt it's dead though because it still shows up in BIOS

The problem is that I can't get the reader to show up at all in windows, not that I can't play dvds from it.

Yeah.. I've done that about 30 times already.
