Try the suggestions here:

If this doesn’t work try this fix by Kapil Arya:

Try these steps:

1. Open the Command Prompt with administrative privileges.

2. Type the following command and hit Enter key:

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

3. Exit the Command Prompt and reboot. Insert a disk to test and the optical or DVD drive should be visible now.

If you do not wish to abide by the forum rules that you agreed to when you joined that is fine but we much prefer that people did so, not that I need to explain but I will, the rule is a disclaimer that all forums have, no private assistance is permitted so as to protect both members and forum staff, if you were to follow a suggestion made by someone via a PM and it resulted in physical or material harm and you had not been both made aware of and agreed to abide by the said rule the forum concerned could find themselves drawn into a legal battle.
