Specs: Windows 7 Professional
I upgraded my HP Pavilion dv6700 to Windows 7 Professional, after which I realized HP didn't have the driver downloads for windows 7 on their website-- My DVD drive isn't recognized either... Any suggestions on the DVD drive in particular, or the other drivers in general. The computer works mostly fine other than the cd drive...

Windows should use a generic driver for a DVD drive, I don't think a 3rd party one would be required. Does it show up in Device Manager?

U should see if the BIOS recognize the DVD drive first.
