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.

If you are looking for the Firmware it's here:

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?
