I own a Dell Dimension 4300 desktop. 1.4 Ghz Pentium 4. Only has a CD-ROM, only a CD-ROM and no other kind of optical drive. I want to add one of those all purpose DVD & CD burners, however I know almost nothing about them. What I need to know is if one of those drives will actually PLAY the DVD or if I will have to buy 2 more drives, one to burn and one to read.
I’ve searched around the web at different retailers, but none of them explicitly say whether or not they’ll actually play what they burn, write, re-write. This might be a real dumb newbie question, but I honestly have no idea where to even look to get this information, so I figured this was my best shot.
