DVD burners don't require model specific drivers on any modern Windows OS. Unless there is something wrong with the OS and/or the drive, the drive should just plug in and work (assuming you have burning software).

Okay well I just bought my second drive, now I have two identical drives, so when I get my computer all put together (new computer) I guess I'll only need to install the LG CD once. Am I correct?
