I have an aspire3630 series laptop, it has a philips DVD+-RW SDVD8441 drive, the drive is able to read only, during write operations using nero express (ver 6) the message shown is that write operation successful but data verification failed.....on reading the dvd after writing the message shown is "BLANK DVD"

Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
The drive name itself is the clue to know whether it can burn dvds or not.
In your case it's a CD-RW (read and write or rewritable) and DVD-ROM (Read only memory and not read and write or rewritable as in the case of CD)
Perhaps the one who told you did not understand your question properly , and understood it , in the sense that it can read CDs as well as DVDs , as far as Dvd-ROM drives are concerned many shopkeepers who are especially new working in the shop just make a guess and answer our question which could lead to this misunderstanding or incorrect information being passed on.
So the next time you buy a DVD drive which should have a read and write functionality as well , then look up for a CD_RW,DVD-RW drive.
Also remember that DVD-RW drive can by default read and write CDs as well , but it's not true for CD drives..
So usually a DVD-RW drive can read and write Cds as well as DVDs but a CD-RW drive can either read or read and write a DVD depending on whether it's a DVD-ROM or DVD-RW.
According to the spec. it should be OK. Don't forget to download the drivers from Sony.com otherwise it won't work correctly.

what happened to ur current drive is it not reading the dvds why dont u try cleaning like this
open the dvd tray u see that eye like shiny thing clean in circular motions gently with soft cloth or tissue and try the dvds see if it reads it is a normal remedy otherwise change the drive if it doesnt help
normally there is one screw below the dvd drive i mean just beneath just take it out and pull ur whole drive unit out not just tray whole drive and replace it with any drive on ebay u can get it around 50 $ u can also fit any brand not just philips but u should look out for the bezel design (front panel ) u can also flip the front panel with the new one if all dimensions are same normally this slot is universal in size hope it helps u can ask for more
You may find the freeware program burnatonce quite helpful, for its info tools provide you with detailed information of the drive's capabilities, for there are many burnable dvd's out there.Install the program, let it check your drive. To me it looks like it supports only DVD+R and DVD+RWs, but I may be mistaken.
