Install dvd rw drive without cd

I just got a new custom computer and I have a LG Super multi dvd+-rw drive. It wasnt recognizing the disc and i accidentally uninstalled the dvd optical drive so now it doesnt show up on device manager anymore. Its a custom cumputer so there is no install cd for the dvd drive or manual for it. How do I reinstall the dvd drive? Its windows 7 by the way.

Couldnt find the drivers on the lg website or any google links, but after unplugging and replugging the dvd drive and a system restart, it must have reinstalled it correctly. DVDs are playing perfectly. Thanks for the input though!
