even after a fresh install windowsxp sp2 standard, the drive won’t function properly, it can’t erase my dvdrw, always end in an error message, and when it read cd, it read so slow, and when I still use dual ide nvidia driver, I got bsod everytime I try to copy from drive to harddrive

My symptom is similiar to this http://club.cdfreaks.com/f87/pioneer-dvr-212-write-errors-nero-8-a-246347/

My mobo is peox mgf6100 am2, it’s a nforce410 mobo

you’ll need to download the latest nvidia drivers for your mobo from the nvidia website. if that doesn’t work then you need to buy a pci sata controller card for the drive. preferably one that has the silicon image chipset 3112 & 3114.
