Does anyone know where I can download the drivers for the DVD drive on my Acer Aspire 5742 i3 Notebook? They aren't on Acers website as far as I can see.

You don't usually need drivers for a DVD drive. What problems are you having

Not a good idea to use an email address for your username !

Whilst I was trying to install new internet security software, I removed the out of date Norton 360 software. In between the 2 actions my computer stopped being able to "see" my DVD drive.

Have you tried uninstalling it and then scan for new hardware within device manager

CD-ROM drive properties says:- Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
