    I have a GA-P35-DS3R motherboard and I just bought a new Samsung
    SH-S203N Sata DVD burner. I finally was able to get the Sata Burner to
    work in Windows XP by disabling the SATA RAID/AHCI mode which makes the
    sata drives act like IDE drives. Before that I could read okay, but
    received errors whenever writing to a CD or DVD. Now, though it works
    in Windows XP, it will not work in Linux. I get similar errors as I did
    in Windows XP before I modified the bios. Does anyone know if Linux and
    Ubuntu in particular support Sata DVD drives or am I going to have to
    buy a Sata to IDE adapter to get this DVD burner to work in both
    operating systems? It would have been nice since it is a Sata drive
    that it would work in Sata mode, but oh well. I won't buy a Sata DVD
    burner again; at least not for a while.

    Never mind, I finally got it to work. Actually it was quite simple and
    I should have thought of it. The auto mode on the software in linux was
    not set properly and was trying to burn it at a faster speed than the
    DVD was capable of. Anyway, it now works in both Windows and Linux.
