no, by the looks of things

The guy I bought it from says that it is.

But he also sells comps with pirated windows software on them

ok...was he reliable?

i mean, if its second hand, he might have ****ed it up, but it seriosly looks like its only a cd burner

i might be wrong and you need new softwarw which aint too hard to come by.

edit: well, he's probably bulla****ting if he used pirate software before selling.

im not slamming pirate software, but not whole operating systems

I used DVD+R

Should I use DVD-R?

What's the difference?

Just different types of files use +r and -r not sure which one you'd need. And also different dvd players will only read certain ones. Just make sure you have a blank disk (like you didn't try burning something on it and the burning quit halfway through).

Doesn't look like it - I think DVD/CD-RW means it's DVD ROM but will read and write normal CDs. A DVD writer will say DVDRW or CD-DVDRW, something like that. If it's a problem, either take it back to the guy you bought it from, or ask for some of your money back and use that to buy an external DVD-RW drive, they're quite cheap.

pretty much. you can also look at the outside of the drive. most say what they are on the outside.

like mine says: Compact Disc Re-writable, DVD-R, DVD Multi Recorder

yeah, definitely not a dvd burner...and as far as the windows piracy thing goes...i don't think it's an actual pirate copy of windows he's using...i'm pretty sure it's only a skin he puts on XP to make it look like vista...it's a brico pack made by crystalXP...completely legal.

No, I put the Vista thing on myself lol.

What he does is uses one windows cd and puts it on a hdd that he owns.

he then mirrors the hard drive onto multiple other drives so he only has to use one product key.
