Hi,

You shouldn't need a driver to run a CD-ROM drive. Windows usually has a generic CD-ROM driver that works with most CD-ROM drives.

Hi,

The BIOS(Basic Input/Output System) is able to recognise the drives, that's why you see the name of the drive when you boot up your system first and the BIOS checks the IDE channels. Why exactly do you need to know where the driver is?
