If its the DVD/RW CD/RW unit it will possibly have...
NTI CD/DVD Burner which is a part of the Arcade System .

Easy to use and stable as anything I have seen before,3
Fast n Friendly,Remembering the max ram is 2GB and
with all barrells loaded performs like a beautiful piece of art.
Also Nero is an old favourite too.
Producing your own dvds from scratch is a satifying excercise and amazing when you can see the look in everyones eyes,,,,
Yes - Impact is everything.

I found your answer,
Grab you machine and look at the symbols on the disk draw.

The device you have is a CD/RW-DVD Rom.
What this means it is a CD Writer and a DVD Reader.
This device will never burn DVDs.sorry

To write DVDs you will need to buy DVD/RW device.

I hope this helps ,please rate me thanks
