|You don't need any specific drivers for any desktop optical (CD or DVD or combo) IDE or SATA drives - the drivers built into XP, or any Windows operating system 95 and up, work fine for IDE / EIDE and SATA optical drives.|
The SATA drives can be run in either IDE compatible mode if the mboard's bios Setup is set to IDE compatible mode (a.k.a. ATA, IDE, EIDE, compatibility mode)
, or in SATA mode if the SATA controller drivers have been loaded and the mboard's bios Setup is set to SATA (a.k.a. AHCI) mode.
There some laptop optical IDE drives that require specific drivers, but that applies mostly, if not only, to older laptop drives.
If the drive is an IDE (EIDE) "combo" optical drive that can burn and read both CDs and DVDs, that is capable of burning DVD-R or DVD+R disks at 16X or greater, the drive must be connected to an 80 data cable in order for it to be able to run and burn at its faster speeds.
If the IDE drive has no DVD burning capabilty, or it it does but can't burn DVD-R or DVD+R disks at 16X or greater, if the drive is by iteself on a data cable, a 40 wire wire data cable is fine.
SATA optical drives cannot run any faster than UDMA 66 burst data transfer speeds (UDMA 4 in Windows), the same as the max for IDE optical drives. The SATA connection merely allows you to connect the drive to a SATA header / SATA drive controller, rather than an IDE header / IDE drive controller.
To burn disks, however, you need burning software - that's not specific to any one manufacturer's drives either.
