You might not need driver if you caould give more information of your system and what problem you have?

you don't need drivers for an DVD drive; windows has generic ones for them.
Why do you want one?

The drivers are in Windows.
If the driver went bad just go into Device Manager and reinstall the driver.

Is the drive not showing in My Computer/Explorer?
Showing as "unknown" in Device Manager?
Not showing in Computer Management\Disk Management?

What's going on that you think you need a driver?

see my answer
then you have a bad cable, a bad drive, or a bad controller (= bad mobo)
The Code 39 was the key.  Glad you found the solution.  And, pleased we helped you stumble upon it.
