    Quick question on OEM purchases, I know they don't come with all the bells and whistles, but do they come with at least the drivers ?

    " but do they come with at least the drivers ?"

    This is a common misconception. Drives only do 1 thing out of the box - read discs.

    You will need to purchase DVD Burning Software like DVD X-Copy(they were told recently to stop selling the software by the courts) in order to do any burning. I would not wait as the supply will disappear eventually.

    I would need the drivers so my computer can recognize the new device installed.

    You don't need drivers for alot of the burners since they're already installed in Windows.If you should need one you can always go to the company website & get it there.
