Dear Eberhard and everybody

The two (80 and 160 GB) harddisks I have in my HP Pavilion t3240, are
'SATA'. However, the list of specifications of my machine does not
clarify whether the burner is 'IDE' or 'SATA'. That list can be found
online via this link:
Is there another way to find out whether this burner is 'IDE' or 'SATA'?
With respect to my CD/DVD burner, this has been written on the
specifications list:

"(...)16X DVD(+/-)R/RW (+/-)R DL drive. Must use Double-Layer media
discs in order to take advantage of the DL technology (...)"

Can you briefly explain how?

Please, explain what you mean with 'IRQ' and 'dma'.
