can you burn DVD's to play on your computer and TV? I have a Dell Optiplex 320 with a HL-DT-ST CDRW/DVD GCCH1ON player. Do I just need DVD burner software or do I need a DVD burner separate from my PC DVD player?
Yes, you need a DVD burner...
If you want to check out what your drive can do, download & install a program called ImgBurn. Launch ImgBurn then click Tools/Drive/Capabilities.
GCC is a combo drive which is not capable of burning to DVD.
