Then you can burn to CDR / RW disc but not DVDR / RW discs

It is still worth checking if you can borrow a DVDRW disc and try to burn because sometimes drives do get incorrectly listed, it will say unsupported media or similar if it cannot use the disc

Click start, right click my computer, click properties, hardware, device manager, click + next to DVD/CD ROM Drives to see if it only shows CD RW Drives

If it is a desktop then you can get a DVDRW Drive and install it in place of the DVD ROM Drive, although the DVDRW Drive will also record to CDR/RW Discs

Run through the upgrade options with them here

At this point you only need to know the type of drives you can install because you will probably source them cheaper elsewhere

Oh okay thanks though! Do you think I can burn any type of video clip using a cd-r? Will it work on the dvd player?

Clip being the operative word because of the file size and limitation to 700mb on a CDR disc
