You don't need drivers. You can either use the built-in burning software with XP, or you need third party DVD burner software, which is what I would recommend. These include Nero, NTI, Roxio, Sonic, etc. I actually prefer Sonic. You'll also need software for viewing DVDs, like PowerDVD, WinDVD, etc. But you don't need drivers, as if you check the device manager you'll see XP sees your drive just fine.
