I have a CD-RW/DVD drive. I have seen a lot of software companies say with their software you can burn a DVD with a CD-RW drive. Is this true, and can any suggest the software I should use? Should I just update my drive?

Hey there duscarter. Welcome To Geeks To Go Forums.

say with their software you can burn a DVD with a CD-RW drive

Nope, this in actually fact I do not think is true. If you want to burn dvd's. You will Have to get a dvd/rw. I have never heard of software that allows you to burn dvd's with a cd/rw. If this was possible everyone would be doing it.

Stick to using a genuin dvd/rw for writing dvd's.

what the software you are talking about does...is rip's a dvd file out into seperate .AVI files or .vid files that allow you to burn them as a VCD (video cd)...none of these programs are capable of bypassing copywrite protection (and we wont help you do that either so don't ask)..
