The specs for the HP don’t list Windows ME, possible lightscribe software won’t work for you. Can’t seem to find much in the way of info/reviews on that HP, you’re on your own, there :). And again, be sure if you go with the AD-7200A to call or E-mail the seller and Make Sure that the drive you are getting is an Optiarc AD-7200A no matter what letters they add to the end of it. . BTW- HP drive pretty old and slow, think you’re better w/ Optiarc.
