The drive can read CDs and DVDs, but can only burn to CDs (not DVDs)

Hi Marvin ...
RW=Rewriteble
Therefore your CD-ROM drive can burn CD, while your DVD-ROM can only see your DVD.

Re: question about drive

Hi Marvin,
If you want to know how fast it can burn etc, that can be most easely be seen in the burn software itself, sometimes is noted on the burner itself, what your drive can do is:

Read:
Audio-cd's
Data-cd's
burned CD-R and CD-RW
DVD-Rom
DVD-R (burned by DVD burner)
DVD+R (burned by DVD burner)

Burn:
CD-R and CD-RW (650MB and 700MB, larger CD, depends on the burner model)

Have a nice day,
HTH, Ronald
