If you mean the driver for your DVD-ROM drive in your computer do this:

Right click "my computer", click properties
Click the hardware tab
Click the device manager button
expand "DVD/CD-Rom drives"
right click on your DVD drive and click properties
Click the Driver tab

That should show you, although if it's for a dvd rom, it's most likely Microsoft.

Open My Computer. Right click on your DVD-ROM Drive. Select Properties. On the new screen, select the Settings tab. In the first portion of that window, the manufacturer and model information will appear next to Name:

What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Do you want to burn DVDs? Play DVDs? Are you getting an error message when you try to use your DVD-ROM drive?

If you are using an OS like XP, Win2k or Vista, you don't need a special driver for a DVD drive, as the drivers are built into those OS's and are generic.
