    when i got a new pc and installed the driver for marvell6xx for asus p5q the dvd rom was disabled or not even noticed in windows but in the bios it was.now i can use both drives without that driver .it says sata driver for marvell update onn the motherboard disk. is it bad not to install the driver if you only have one hard drive or do i need it cause in the device menu it dosent name the liteon dvdrom just the model DH16D2P.then it says ATAPI DVD D DH16D2P ATA drive. do i need the marvell6xx driver that came on the asus p5q motherboard disk? im running vista Home

    Vista does have support for SATA but the drivers won't be up to date. It's probably worth going on the manufacturers web site and getting the latest version..
