Lenovo N580 Optical drive (DVD) has been deleted... Help

My optical drive has been deleted after I upgraded to WIndows 10. I have tried to the Run Command trick and there were no UpperFilters or anything. I even went to my Device Manager and it has totally vanish. Is there a link where I can redownload the DVD/CD drive?

Hi wmcghee89 , 


Welcome to the Community Forums . 


Can you try to go back to the device manager , click on show hidden device on top .

Uninstall any that show DVD CD devices including possible IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers and restart. 


Check if optical drive is detected , else shutdown and access the BIOS F9 to load defaults and F10 to save and exit .

While on BIOS , see if the optical drive is detected too . 


Update us how it goes .
