You shouldn't need a driver for any CD drive, all the ones I have seen use a generic driver which covers all optical drives and windows loads that itself.
If you are having problems with it my suggestion is go into control panel, system, hardware, device manager. Find the CD drive and delete it. Restart your PC and windows will find the drive as a new device and load a fresh copy of the driver in.

and get back momentarily with an update

the problem is that when it attempts to reinstall the drive, it does not succeed, the drive is not showing in "My Computer", and the error message in the device manager states that; " Windows cannot start this device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged (code 19)???

Only drivers for Optical drives are supplied by the Operating System Windows. But to be able to Write DVD's you need a Program as NERO that provides in the software the drives for Nero to be able to Write to Disc's

I assumed, perhaps wrongly that the problem was your DVD writer would not read any CDs at all and wasn't working, is this not the case?
