Can I install old DVD burner on Windows 7?

Specs: Windows 7 64bit Professional, Intel Core i3 2100

I have an old DVD burner (Model: TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-H652L/HPAH ) I want to transfer to my new computer can I do this? What I have installed on my new computer is (Model: TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-216AB ) The old computer has Windows XP on it, and the new one has Windows 7.

Is this possible? Or should I just buy a new DVD burner?

All I wanted to do was use the old burner for the LightScribe function.

Thanks to anyone that can help. I've asked questions here a few years ago, and I always got the best answers from this site.

Simply fit the burner to a vacant slot in your tower, make the IDE/Power connection and turn your machine on... Windows will "discover new hardware" and use it's own driver and you're up and running.

Well, it should just work.

Hang up and live.

Some DVD burners may not work correctly in Windows 7 and may need firmware update although you can fit them in your computer one way or another.
