Question about Dell Dimension 8400 PC Desktop
I have A Dell™ Dimension™ 1100/B110 Systems and i was just wonder if you can tell me this system is capable of writing files to dvd(pictures,slideshows&etc)
In the specifications on Dells Website it does list a DVD RW drive as an OPTION for this model.
Seeing as this is an Option and NOT a standard component we are still up in the air yet. Sooooooo now we have to to a bit of research on your behalf.
1.) Press the <Windows> key and <Pause break> to bring up the properties page for your PC
2.) there should be a "Hardware" or "Device manager" tab or link on this page (Depending on Operating System)
3.) after we get to the device manager we should see a list of hardware on the system, click on the CD/DVD option or Optical drive option (Again depending on OS)
4.) If you have adrive listed here as DVD -R or DVD +R or DVD -RW or DVD +RW or DVD RAM then you do indeed have a writable drive and just need the burning software.
If not one of those options you likely just need to install a DVD writer drive and your good to go.
Hope this helps you out.

your answers unfortunately is yes and no... not very helpful eh? :)
you see the DELL B110 can come with any type of optical drive including a dvd burner but you have to opt for it when you buy it. If you are unsure or want to find out more about your machine then click on:
Start menu> Control Panel> System> Hardware> Device manager
In that screen you can see all of the hardware that your PC has installed.
there is a particular one that we want to see and that would be the CD/DVD hardware if you press the little plus sign and you see that DVD RAM (not rom) is installed. then you can burn DVDs.
That said the easier way to find out is to stick a blank dvd into the drive and try to burn something with Nero (a cd/dvd burning software).
If i can help you with anything else pelase feel free to ask
