I don't know what kind of burner I have. It came with my computer. My computer is a Windows XP (if that does you any good). Now for my question. I went out the other day and bought some blank DVD-R's for cough backing up some of my DVD's. Then it got me thinking, do I need a special burner to burn DVD's? I know my writing drive can burn audio CD's and read DVD's, so will this work for recording them?
