    Is it PATA? Yes.

    Is it SATA? Yes, less easily.

    installed it, (staples guy): that was easy

    I have never seen an easier install before, slide the rack out, screw in 4 screws, slid back in, done. Everything works perfectly INCLUDING the light scribe feature. Whats the command for opening the second dvd drive? I tried shift-eject, no luck.

    What software are you using for the Lightscribe image creation/burning?
