a required cd dvd drive device driver is missing

I am trying to reinstall Vista Home on a formatted hard drive but keep
getting the error message:

"a required cd dvd drive device driver is missing"

How can I get past this? I flirted with the idea of putting the driver
files on a USB hard drive that I have because it recognizes the drive
when it's plugged in but the drivers on the Sony site (it's a Sony Vaio,
the dvd rom drive is an Aptiarc) are in .exe file. When I install them
on another PC I can't seem to find the actual driver files. Where can I
find them to copy to the USB drive to get this to load or how can I get
past this error message?

see if you can extract the files with this program, then put them on the
usb drive. let me know what happens (i got the same error when trying to
do a clean install of windows7)

I tried using the program and extracted the files but it's still saying
the driver cannot be found.
