Replacing Optical Drive: Anything I have To Be Concerned About

They don't use drivers that  i know of unless it is USB. You should just be able to plug the new one in and it will work.

I have a LG 24X Dual Burner or something and I'm swapping it to an ASUS same spec one.

 

This is because I'm selling a low end PC to a friend and I might as well use newer parts and the ASUS branding (which is great to match my mobo, graphics card, and monitor)

 

Is there anything I have to worry about?

 

Also, how can i remove the old drivers?

Take the old one out, put the new one in and you are done.

 

No drivers for windows or linux or unix. CD-RW/DVD-RW support is included since at least 1998.

SATA is plug and play?

Pretty much, as long as the OS detects it, then it is good to go.
