A DVD drive never needs a driver as these are build into windows (come with windows)

If you have a error condition in the device manager on the dvd drive status, driver corrupt? Then try these steps:

or you can also try reinstalling windows or using the restore discs to restore the machine to factory defaults.

Try this, you have all the drivers there..

I am not sure if you need specific driver for DVD as windows take care of that.try installing one of DVD players and see if they will detect it by playing DVD film.

hope this helped thank you.
