Device driver for LiteOn DL-8ATSH Slim Slot 8x DVD-RW

Hi Guys :)

I'm having trouble finding a driver for the recent LiteOn DL-8ATSH Slim Slot 8x DVD-RW that I bought from Amazon ( .....

I am trying to do a fresh clean install of Windows 7 from a downloaded disc image burnt to DVD, but right near the start of the installation process the system asks for a driver for the DVD/CD drive. I'm a little confused as the system seems to be able to see the drive and read the data from the installation disk, but I guess this driver is needed for the new version of Windows install itself.

All I can seem to find on-line are driver install or repair apps that work on the machine you are browsing on. I need to download the driver and copy it to a blank CD, so I can insert it when asked for during the installation process. Can anyone point me in the right direction to a download for this writer, as it was bought as an OEM product with no driver disc. My then working version of Windows 7 just seemed installed the right device driver itself when I first bought it.

Many thanks :)

MechKB is right. Drivers should be built into the install disk.
