external dvd not detected

I have an external HP DVD1040 DVD drive to complement my EEEPC notebook, up until W7 became to bloated, it worked fine. Once I had seen the light and moved over to Linux (several flavours before Fedora) it has ceased to be recognised. I am a newbie to Linux and would like to know if anyone can help me with both finding the right driver and installing it. Thanks for all help in advance. Chris
