    Hi all...

    in my office i have a pc with dvd burner but don't know if it is DVD-R or DVD+R.
    I asked the tech person a number of days ago but no response yet...
    is there a way of finding it out from the pc?

    Google for and downolad "Nero Info Tool", it's a free utility that will tell you everything about your burner and more.

    start > control panel > system
    hardware tab > device manager
    look for DVD / CD rom drives, click the + to expand
    assuming the proper device drivers are installed it will say here what you have (something like philips DVD +- RW)
    most likely (unless its quite an old computer) you have a DVD +- RW, meaning it can write / rewrite on either media type

    It works with all formats checked. It's neither a DVD+R drive nor a DVD-R drive. It's a DVD-RAM drive which is yet a different type of disk.

    Huh?

    It's a 20x Write Speed DVD±R, DVD±RW, DVD-RAM drive (burner) compatible with all DVD/CD formats.
