optical drives when installed only need the generic drivers from the O/S you are useing use the add new hardware wizard and follow the instructions

I done that but nothing appears... the CD drive is connected properly... if I done the Add new hardware and i had the installation for the CD drive then i can install it.

If it's only a CD drive, and it's not working MSCDEX is the windows driver for a CD reader. you can remove the CD drive from device manager and restart computer and Windows will reconfigure the drive, if it's a DVDrw or CDrw you need software with the drivers as in NERO burning rom
