dependant on operating system.
you should not need drivers for cd/dvd drives, as the standard drivers supplied with windows 2000-ME-XP should be sufficent to work the drive.
i,d suggest checking the driver jumper block at the rear of the drive, and seeing if it,s connecting as a master or slave drive, if it,s not being recognised by the system. if the hard-drive jumper ( Small plastic Block ) On the back of the drive is set as Slave, set the CD Drive as Master, or Vice-Versa.

Normally, DVD Drives are plug and play and there are already native drivers (in built software inside the Operating System) installed on your Operating System, hence you do not need to install the driver for it anymore since it should work automatically, once it is connected to your computer.

You can try downloading the firmware for the said device on your computer manufacturer's website (DELL, HP, etc.)

Hope this helps.

My dvd writer is reading the CD's but doesn't reading the DVD's please tell me what is the problem

computer thinks it's just a cd rom and not that it actually is a cd dvd rw. should have come with a cd containing the drivers for it and the cd dvdrw softwares. roxio is a good solution for the software.

Where can I get the driver for my LG GDR-8164B DVD-ROM Drive? I have an HP Compaq D220 MT system and need this driver. Thanks

You should not need a driver for a CD/DVD drive. Drivers are built into windows.
If you are having problems, you could try uninstalling the device in device manager, and let windows re install the drive.
You may find a bios update to help with this problem here
