Dvd/cd-rw combo does not record

\015 I'm trying to burn or download video snippets on a dvd+rw disc but it keeps ejecting the dvd and has a comment that says to "download a writable disc. Is my aspire 3680-2022 capable of recording or is just a player. Thanks. Bill\015

Answers :

You may have what is called a combo drive...it can play and burn cds but can only play dvds, not burn them. Look at the face plate on the drive and see what is written on it. If it has the following:
Recordable Drive = CD Burner
DVD = DVD Player
RW & DVD = DVD Burner

If recordable drive and DVD is on the drive but no RW, chances are its a combo drive. Keep us posted.

Gateway, MX6447 My Girl has a Gateway MX6447, Her processor runs hot, very hot and the video card seams to be suffering and the memory tops out at a respectable 1gig DDR. My question; Can I get a better motherboard/processor combo that I can replace myself? One that will fit in this particular case. I'm not worried about warranty issues-if the project fails or is impossible, it will be set a fire and recorded and displayed on youtube for fun.
