With what o/s? They both should with xp,vista and windows 7 the driver should be auto installed during the installation process or if adding to a existing system just use the auto install driver option on the dvd drive in device mananger.

Windows 7 has built in CD Packet burning software so you can drag data and files onto them like a hard drive if you're only going to use them on another computer. If you need a proper track-based data disc (e.g. music CD) or want to burn .img files then there are several popular programs that a quick search should fine, CDBurnerXP for example.

Windows 7 has programs built in for burning audio CD's and video DVD's etc so you may not need any additional software for using them.
A free program I often use though is ImgBurn.
