Everest Home Edition
Everest Home Edition (the successor of AIDA32) is a system information and benchmarking tool with full hardware & software information available as freeware for the individual user. It comes with a built-in hardware database and physical information for CPU, motherboard, hard disks, optical drives, chipset and much more. The information can be displayed on-screen, printed, or saved as a report in HTML or text format. The built in diagnostics module can help you find potential problems, by highlighting them in the report and also includes links to manufacturers web sites, driver updates and more. An easy to use report wizard allows you to create detailed reports in the format of your choice.
The software manufacturer (Lavalys) site seems to have discontinued the freeware version and the last freeware version no longer offered “Software reports” so try the download at oldversion.com.
Get version 1.51 which has the Software listing capability which successive versions have deleted.
AIDA, the predecessor to Everest and pretty much the same program and still has the Software listings:

You can also get a freeware version of Belarc Advisor, a similar benchmarking tool:http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html
See if it will recognize your DVD drive. If it does, it will give you the manufacturer and model and possibly a link to the manufacturer's support site for the latest driver.
