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
sounds like you broke something internally, and it is shorting out when you turn it on. I would suggest properly disposing the drive and buying a new one, as external drives are not worth fixing, and if it has a burning smell it is most defiantly a fire hazard.
