BenjaminHi Benjamin is that data cd really a cd, or is it a dvd. on the other hand, is your cdwriter also a dvd player, and if so, does it support the dvd media (aka does it do dvd+-r/rw, or has it certain spec limitations?).

Thanks so much for responding.
1) It really is a data CD. In fact, I compiled it using K3b on a CD-RW disk.
2) My CD/CDWriter is ONLY a CDWriter. It cannot write DVD. My DVD drive is just a DVD Player, not a DVD writer. It came with my Dell Dimension 8200, which I bought five years ago.
