Windows 7 cd/dvd drive not working after custom install

Hi everyone, I did a custom install of windows 7. After this happened, my cd/dvd drive is not working.

Does anyone know what the problem would be?

I tried uninstalling it and having my computer reinstall it. It seems like it wants to install a windows vista drive or something.

64 bit or 32 bit windows 7?

what is the model of your dvd drive? you may be able to find it in [msinfo32.exe under components, cd-rom] or [device manager under DVD/CD-ROM Drivers]. otherwise you can read it off the drive itself or the box it came in.

have you tried to download the driver from the manufacture website?

hp DVDRAM GT20L SCSI CdRom Device, but I can't find it anywhere. Do you know where this would be?
