SOAK: DVD burner capabilities?
So I just got a new laptop that has a DVD burner,
(NEC DVD+RW ND-5100A) but there was no documentation for it included, and nothing on the DELL support page for this computer's configuration, other than listing that this hardware is on the machine. Any advice on how to determine what capabilities it has? I've already written a couple of regular DVD+R's, but I'm wondering if it can also do DVD-R's, or DVD-RW. I'm assuming there is DVD+RW media, although I found none at the store I bought my DVD+R's. I bought a two pack of DVD-RW, thinking that perhaps this recorder could do both, but I don't want to open it without a reasonable expectation that it can handle this media.
I've tried NEC's web site with no success so far.
Secondary question: I burned a bunch of MP3's to a DVD+R, and finalized it, but my DVD player does not recognize it. It can handle MP3 CD's, but I'm now thinking that MP3-DVD's is not a standard capability of a DVD player. Is this a correct conclusion?
I'm not a Bug, I'm a Feature!
