Optical drives don't need any extra drivers. Its driver comes with Windows.

Give me more details as to what exactly happens.

One thing to remember is that you will need DVD playing software to play DVD movies in Windows 8 since Microsoft does not provide playback of Video DVDs unlike what they did provide in Windows 7. Something like a Windows 8 compatible version of PowerDVD and Others.



Q&A: Playing DVD Movies in Windows 8 By J.D. BIERSDORFER

Does Windows 8 have a DVD player program for watching movies? If so, how do I find it?


Windows 8 does not include a default video player for watching movies on DVD. In a company blog post last year, Microsoft representatives cited the decline in disc sales and licensing fees for DVD player software as factors in the decision. Windows 8 should be able to read data stored on DVD discs; if not, check with your hardware manufacturer for troubleshooting tips.
