The optical disc drivers are part of the OS. The available drivers and software for Windows Vista, the original OS for the DV6748us are here: . Select your version and click Next.

Windows XP and the subsequent versions of Windows all had the drivers for internal optical drives and most external drives in the Plug and Play control. You may need to go to the Device Manager and check the device status then manually update the driver. (For Vista, click Start > Control Panel (in the right hand column, then under Hardware look for the Device Manager link.) Expand the section for optical drives and look for a triangle with a red x or a yellow exclamation point. Right click on the device and click on the Update Driver button. If that doesn't work, try uninstalling the driver then shut down the computer. Check if Windows loads the driver correctly when you reboot. If you continue to have problems, the drive or cables might be bad. Consider getting a new optical drive (slim if you want to stay with an internal drive).

I hope this helps.

I cant play cd or dvd on my laptop

A DVD player that is an integral part of the laptop does not need drivers to make it play discs. If there is no driver shown, maybe the DVD unit is faulty?
All laptops will play CD/DVD from boot without drivers. The drivers are there to allow you to do specifics to the DVDs.

Acer Athlon x2 Cd drive won't recognize CD

If the PC will not recognise any CD, re boot the PC with your Windows system CD/DVD in the tray. If it reads the disk, the DVD unit is OK, you probably have a conflict somewhere in the drivers.
Go to Control panel, Device manager, double click on DVD/CD-ROM drive, select the DVD drive, doulbe click and from the menu select Driver. Select Uninstall driver and reboot your PC.
When it boots the PC will look for a new driver and place it where there is no conflict.
Hope that helps.

My DVD RW AD-7563A doesn't respond when disc inserted. Tried allowing my M-6750 to find a a driver. No dice. Where can I find a driver for this device?

OK, a CD DVD doesn't require any driver, other than the "Generic" driver that Windows installs. IF it will NOT install A/Any Driver. Then the unit has faulted. This is very very common. I get countless CD DVD replacements a year, at my shop. Usually a DVD/CD will "Just Work" 9/10 times if the unit doesn't work, or work correctly, it is the Unit itself. More often that not, it is the Laser Head, or the Quadrant Detector, that faults. CD/DVD's are very simple to replace. It is preferable to get an exactly the same one.However there are many, ones that will work just as well, a CD/DVD is a CD/DVD they are the same for most part, except for the on-board software, differences. .Check all connection, and power as well. Sometimes it is the CD/DVD "Controller" that faults on the actual Motherboard, now, the ONLY way to troubleshoot this, is by replacement, by, swapping out, the unit, for a "Known Good" unit. If replacing in a laptop, you should, indeed, get ab exact replacement, the CD?DVD is held in usually by clips, or screws, underneath the laptop, about at the rear of the unit, simply remove fastenings, slide out the old bad, CD?DVD, and slide in, and press home the connector, on the New one, then reboot the laptop, the BIOS, will "See" the new unit, and the Windows software will "Detect" and install the new dive. It will be ready to use after a reboot.
