I really have no idea what mode the SATA controller is in to be honest - and don't know how to change it.
Would it being different/wrong only stop lightscribe from working and still allow the drive to read and burn as normal?

Check in BIOS. Should be there somewhere.

It shouldn't affect it as far as I would think... but I've seen weirder things.

As stated here, if you do find it in your BIOS don't change it as your machine will no longer boot. There is a way to fix it though: Error message occurs after you change the SATA mode of the boot drive. Note that you need to make the change in the registry BEFORE you change the BIOS setting.

Some CD drives are very picky... I have one that refuses to work in ANY mode other than standard IDE mode, then another that rather hates IDE, always get failed burns while in IDE.

Thanks everyone for the help!
I took the easy way out and bought a new burner which is working perfectly. It was only £12 and I have given the old one to my sister to put in her computer which only has the one drive – it is still working fine for normal reading and writing.

Thanks again everyone.
