Question about LG CRN 8241B (CRN-8241B) Internal 24x CD-ROM Drive
Sorry, but the technologies are not forward-compatible like that. The CD can write about 700MB of data to a 4-3/4" CD, but cannot write to a DVD. It may be the same physical size, but DVDs hold approximately 4.7 GigaBytes, or roughly 6 times MORE data and use a completely different writing technique. The only choice is to go and purchase a new DVD writer and replace the CD writer completely. With the reduction in costs lately, look for a DVD-RW (ReWritable) so you can use disks over and over again instead of one time each. It requires that you buy slightly more expensive disk, but they can be re-written 100s of times.
