I don't have XP and don't know how to look up what the CD drive is in XP. In Win 98, you right-click My Computer, then Properties, then Device Manager tab, and then click the + next to where it says CDROM to see what's listed there. You may also see your CD drive listed when you boot up the computer.
I suppose it isn't the make of the drive so much as that you get that message when you try to start the game. You might want to inform Dreamcatcher what make CD drive you have.
If you want to know more about your computer's specs, you might try downloading a utility like Sandra, which identifies what is in your computer. The version here
seems to be a shareware version.
