Noob Q - can Win Explorer write a DVD?

Final noob q for now I hope -

Wondering if Windows can write a data DVD in the same way it lets you drag files to a blank writeable CD. In this post http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=122203 qwakrz thought probably not but if anyone knows for sure whether it should be possible or not then pse let me know!

Thanks

No it cant you need independent software to write dvds.

Thanks

Bit disappointing given that Mac OS X can do it … but then I suppose they only have one (or two) types of DVD drive to worry about …
