I have an HP desktop with Windows 10.  It has a single DVD drive.  When inserting.a disk it does not register that there is anything in the drive.  I can hear it kidsspin up and the heads move, but nothing happens.  The drive does not appear in My Computer.  It works fine with an external USB drive.  What can I do to make the drive respond?
