Question about writing dvds

\015 My lap top says it is a dvd/cd/rw combo but when I checked the capablities it will only read dvds but not write them, and then in only read only files how do I enable its ability to write dvds?\015

Answers :

Look on the drive itself, if it says so, then it may be the software settings. check users manual for further help with these.
Does it say it's a dvd -rw or a dvd +rw ? chances are it's a read only unit.

I just bought a W3653 last week and I've 3-4 questions. First, I'm 70 years old, had open-heart surgery 20 years ago which pretty well zapped me of any short-term memory and I am basically computer illiterate.
