HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8240B writes dvd??

can this burner burn dvd?

Plior,

As the name suggests, the HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8240B is a CD Writer and not a DVD Writer. So it cannot burn DVDs.

If you would like to burn DVDs, there are many DVD writers currently available on the market that should do the trick.

Hoping this answers your question,

Eric Georgieff

I canŽt read VCDs with this burner. IŽd like to know what can be the reason. Age? Tech problem? Software'
Thanks

urr, i'm not sure if this topic is still going, but i have that drive also and i don't have any problems with reading VCD's. How old is it? Try getting an update from the LG website http://www.lge.com.

I had to re-format my hard drive and can't find the download for my CD-RW. Is there any way to re-download?

Randy,

Did you ever figure out how to get the writing software for the PC back? I'm in the same situation as you, also looking to find software that will allow me to write to the 8240B after a disk crash wiped my program out.
