The drive itself doesn't need install drivers. Windows will automatically find it.
What program are you using to copy the DVD?
What type of DVD is it? What is the DVDs maximum speed. Your drive is 16x but if the DVD you are using is only 4x or 8x etc you could get problems if you try to burn faster than the disk can accept.
If you are using the built-in XP burner (Roxio) as far as I know it doesn't support DVDs only CDs
