idea Re: DRIVER NEEDED: LiteOn Technology GSA-H3O N (Windows XP Professional)

Optical drives never require a driver when used in any Windows os from Win95 up. Windows XP, Windows Vista, & Windows 7 all provide native support that allows an optical drive to read a data or music disk and to burn a cd-r disk. No support for playing dvd disks, avi or mpeg video files, or for burning cd-rw or dvd disks. For those tasks, compatible 3rd. party recording & dvd decoding software is required. All modern optical drives are plug and play in all Windows OS's beginning with Windows 95.... if the controller (either SATA or IDE) driver is installed.

And the proper model name/number is: GSA-H30N (not GSA-H3O N) [that 6th digit is a zero not an upper case oh]. The GSA-H30N has a SATA interface (not "Other" as stated).

Microsoft did not start including SATA drivers until Vista was release. SATA did not exist when Windows XP was created so Microsoft could not include drivers for a device that hadn't even been invented yet. That means you must obtain the Windows XP driver for your SATA controller.... either integrated on the install cd or via F6 and a floppy drive.
