Can I Burn A DVD-RW Disc On CD Burner?

by on October 19, 2006

Q: Is there any way to burn data and/or audio to a DVD-RW disc using a CD burner?

A: If your computer has a CD-R/RW drive and not a DVD+/-RW drive that also burns CD-R/RW, then no you can not burn DVD Data on your CD burner. You will need to purchase a DVD Burner for your computer (which these days can be purchased for a relatively cheap amount of money).

Just make sure before you buy a DVD burner you verify what is already in your system from the store you purchased it from (or look on the bill of sale). CD Burners and DVD Burners look the same from the outside.
