\015 Hii..how do i know if my computer can burn dvds if my computer?my compueter is dell inspiro 531and has window vista.\015

Answers :

If you have Vista, it most likely can burn Dvd's only because most of the new computers come with DVD burners. But another way you can check is click on the start icon, go to Computer and under Devices and Removal Storage you should see DVD RW Drive(E.). The (E) could be different depending on what the drive letter is. Hope this helps.
