So from the installation security guide I read the following:
"Use a USB optical drive.
Attach a SATA optical drive to a secondary SATA controller, then assign this 
secondary SATA controller to an AppVM."

And for USB Drive:
"Untrustworthy firmware. (Firmware can be malicious even if the drive is new. 
Plugging a drive with rewritable firmware into a compromised machine can also 
compromise the drive. Installing from a compromised drive could compromise even 
a brand new Qubes installation.)"

Do usb optical drives not also have the same problem firmware wise?

What about sata?
