You don`t say what the problem is.
You don`t need drivers for a CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW or DVD+/-RW.
What you need is up to date burning software which recognises your drive for what it is.
You may also need to update your ASPI.

If you bought your dvd/cd burner new it will include the driver and maybe burning software. if not you gota go buy a burning program like NERO.If it is the drivers goto driverguide and use the username "driver2" password "all" and find whatever driver you need based on the company and model.

You still haven`t stated what your problem is.
You do NOT need drivers for any kind of ROM drive, except in DOS. Windows supplies a generic CD-ROM drive which enables it to recognise and use any standard IDE drive.
You may get more help if you provide more info.
PC or Mac?
Windows 95? 98? ME? NT? 2000? XP (Home/Pro)?
IDE or SCSI?
Looks like it`s crystal ball time again
