The issue can be either with the Hardware or the software.

First, check if the DVD Drive is listed in My Computer or not.
If yes, try uninstalling the DVD Drive from the Device manager by following the steps :
Right Click on My Computer and select Properties in the list.
Now go to Hardware tab and click on the Device Manager button.
Device Manager window opens in a seperate window.
Now click on the [+] mark next to DVD/CD Rom Drives to expand the tree.
Right click on the DVD Drive entry and select Uninstall.
Confirm if you get any message and close the Device Manager and restart the Notebook so that the DVD Drive Drivers will be reinstalled automatically.
