Usually the drivers are installed by the operating system and the manufacturers dont have drivers for download
Try the firmware update.

other options are: go to start - control panel - system - hardware tab - device manager - look for your cd/dvd drive there right click it and select properties - go to the driver tab - try clicking update driver

try uninstalling the driver and then reinstall using the same method above

You could also try disabling it then re-enabling it this you could say is a type of refresh

Hope that helps
