Win7 to Win10 Upgrade - DVD drive now missing

HP Pavilion p6120t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Post WIndows 10 upgrade - all is well except my DVD drive, HP DVD-RAM GH40, is not detected by the OS now. The secondary ROM drive is noted and functioning.

Each, though, is accounted for in the BIOS but Device Manager is helpless. It doesn't know it's there and new hardware searches can't find it.

How can I get it back online?
