Free download of Roxio Creator or Sonic Recorder for PowerBookG4

I recently ordered the following external DVD burner on the advice of a macforums member:

LG GSA-E50L Slim 8x DVD±RW DL USB 2.0 Powered External Drive w/LightScribe (Black/White)

Evidently I need to download a free version of Roxio Creator or Sonic Recorder software in order to use this burner. I have no idea which one to download- it's very confusing. Can someone send me a link?

I hate to return the burner and start over, but perhaps I should. HELP!

1) Both of those products are paid for products. Drive manufacturers sometimes include them, but they have a deal worked out with the company.

2) Even if you found a free copy, it wouldn't work.

Both products are from Sonic as they bought Roxio. They do have Mac software, it is called Toast. You will want to buy Toast or some other burner software for the Mac. Toast is not available for Windows.
