The drivers for you optical drive are contained within the operating system and don't need to be updated.
Which operating system are you using?
Does the optical drive work at all? Can you read dvds and cds with it?
Have you tried doing test burns with the drive using another burning program? There are a couple of free ones that you can use, CDBurnerXp and ImgBurn. If you use ImgBurn for a test, post the burn log here in your thread. You can find it by clicking Help within ImgBurn, then ImgBurn Logs.
