I really don't know... but it can play movies but it doesn't recognize blank DVD's...

and it will not unless its a dvd-rw,just because it plays movies doesn't make it a dvd-rw.it has to be a dvd burner to recognize blank dvd's ,a lot of laptops have cd-rw/dvd player combos,so they only play dvd and burn CD's

ok ,that means it burns CD-R and playes DVD's ,it does not burn DVD's ,that why it doesn't read the blank dvd.

only thing you can do is buy a dvd burner that is made for your model laptop.expensive!!
