Why doesn't my DVD Sata drive doesnt show up in Windows XP?

It shows up in my BIOS, but not in XP. It is a lite-on LH-20A1L. I screwed up and bought an OEM drive on Newegg.com

The last box I stacked required me to load SATA drivers via a USB floppy while loading windows. Don't know if that's the case or not.

Thats what I was thinking too. I don't have a floppy disk, and Albatron doesnt have crap fr drivers on my old board.

What a waste of a post. If you have nothing to contribute than don't bother posting.

check which SATA port you plugged it into on the mobo... I have 2 sata HD's and a SATA DVD burner... On my MOBO I have 2 plugs that are regular and show up like an IDE drive, the other 4 are through the on-board raid.

I have to have the burner plugged into one of the non-raid spots to show up...

My motherboard is kinda old, so it only has 2 SATA ports. The DVD drive shows up just like and IDE drive in BIOS. I think the problem is with my IDE controllers. I tried to update the drivers, but for some reason my verison on the controller isnt the same one that intel says it is supposed to be. HERE Mine is 82801EB.
