I have not been able to use the CD-RW for some time and can't find the driver anywhere (mat****a 8221) on the net. What can I do to rectify this?

ATAPI devices generally don't need a driver, just CD burning software. Can you elaborate a bit as to the nature of the problem?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Put in a disk it clicks and ticks and spins at about half speed for a few seconds and then shuts down click and ejects. I tried to boot with original os x disk while holding C and it reads enough to know disk is in but wont run. I've heard about reflashing the drive but don't know how.

I don't believe you have a software or firmware issue there. Sounds like it's a failed mechanism. If you're out of warranty, you may want to take a look at replacing it. The best place to start would be ifixit.com.
