If you scroll down the page to the rectangular box named 'Download Guided Help' 127 kb download.This is an auto fix for windows XP and Vista Beta...It may work with your Vista. Just click on the program and follow
the instructions

DMA should be enabled
What do you have listed in Device Manager> IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers?

Try updating drivers for both of them. If Intel site says, they are up to date, do it anyway. Uninstall current drivers, and install fresh ones.

First of all, restart your computer, and see if Windows will find correct drivers...

Neither XP nor Vista should need drivers for a CDRom or a burner.
Try that drive in another machine to make sure it isn't the problem.
I would also try another IDE cable...
