Xp, should see it.

You can search the database of Driver Guide

You have to register, but it is free.

UK MP's are thieving scumbags.
EU members are worse.

Normally optical drives do not require any additional drivers.

Is your computer a laptop? If so, what brand and model?

Did the drive work before? did it recently fail? What shows in the device manager under DVD drive? If the drive was working and recently stopped and if the drive shows an error under device manager check this link. This failure has been showing up on systems at various times especially after a system update that corrupts the registry depending on the disk burning program.

As OtheHill said, optical drives don't need special drivers installed. They're already built into the OS.
