Any help and info would be great.Thank you my computer wont reconize my Memorex dvd+rw blank disks. the menu with options of what to do next that normaly comes up when blank disks are inserted doesnt show up
For thing like DVD burner drives, Windows XP/Vista offer universal support, meaning that it won't matter that you own a Dell computer, you can buy any DVD drive and it will work.
I recommed the following for $51. It also comes with software to support burning DVDs, just in case your current software does not offer this feature.

Tips for a great answer:
Yes, you may install a Sony DRU530A 8X DVD+RW/-RW to your Dell Computer.
Interface is EIDE, I'm very sure it has an EIDE cable with the package.
Enjoy your new DVD Burner!
Hope this helps you a lot.
Thank you for using FixYa!
