Go to mycomputer and if the drive just says d drive it wont be a re-writer for dvds - its needs to say DVD-RW writer - or look at the drive for a dvdrw sign

Open the DVD drive, stick in a bit of paper, close it...wait for 5 mins, then eject the disc and all will be revealed! :-p

Yep, Should be able to, Dvd burning generally uses more system resources though when it's encoding video etc...

You need to check what kind of connection you need if your ordering a new one. If it's an older PC and your swapping out your current one it'll probably be IDE/PATA, the newer versions are SATA.

If you manage to pull out the one you have, compare it to thses pics.

This is IDE

This is SATA - Power cable on left, data on right.
