I simply quoted the actual documentation!

My *bad*--I looked at the *parent* directory and it had that *readme.txt* file--didn't note the slight naming change!

I think it's just terminology. Like I said, I'm not familiar at all with SATA since I don't have it and have never used it. But it seems like it can run in various "modes" (?), and apparently these SATA drivers require the conventional IDE mode rather than the AHCI mode, whatever that is. I don't think that's the same as switching from SATA to PATA, as in a converter or equivalent. But I'm not trying to split hairs. I would like to know if they do indeed work with SATA drives, and if the mode switch I mentioned solved the OP's problem.

Yeah I did the same thing, and only realized it later on. BTW I have not tested or used the XGCDROM driver at all, only the UIDE driver which works fine with IDE CD/DVD drives albeit with a few quirks which I'll report later on.

This DOS SATA optical drive driver will give you the ability to access files on an optical disc--but, writing an image to an optical disc can only occur if Ghost's built-in optical drive drivers are compatible with your optical drive
