Gerald, a brief Google of the TSL 462d shows that it is a combination drive. It can both read and write to cds, but it can only read dvds. You cannot burn a dvd with it.

Here are the specs: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/storage/P126152/en/spec.htm

If you want to burn dvds with this laptop, the easiest path would be to buy an external dvd drive.
