It is most definately a DVD/CD-ROM. That means you can't burn either DVDs or CDs.

 

Buying burning software doesn't add the additional hardware inside the drive to change a Read-Only to a burner.

 

If you want to burn DVDs, you are going to have to buy a DVD burner.

The reason DVD discs will not work is that that drive will only write to CD discs. For DVD discs it is only a reader. You'll need to get a DVD writer drive in order to write to DVD discs.

What you can do with your "perfect project" is burn it File. This will create an ISO file which is a disc image.

 

You should be able to transfer that ISO file to a PC with a DVD burner and use the burning software there to burn the ISO file to a DVD.

 

Note that not all burning software will recognize a Roxio ISO file, but the odds are good.

DVD rewriters are quite cheap these days - and all that's required really is a small philips screwdriver

 

Open the case, remove the 4 screws holding the present drive in place, pull out the two (or three) cables at the back and slide the whole drive out the front.

 

Check the back of it and you will see a small jumper with three settings - CS, M and S. Set the DVD drive to the same as the old CD, slide it in, reconnect the cables and then replace the screws

 

Switch on and you have a nice new DVD rewriter

Thanks James

Another option would be an external DVD writer that connects using a USB2 port. They usually run a bit more $, but can be more convienient to add, especially if using a laptop.
