    Get a program like DVD decrypter. It can tell you.

    I don't know what OS (operating System) your running, here a way to find out what CD burner you have,this way works on most Windows OS, click start > Control Panel > Click System > Hardware tab > click on Device Manger, then click the little "+" next to "DVD/CD-ROM Drives" it will open a list of all the DVD/CD Drives you got installed into your system. If you got a Mac then I dunno what to say I'm a PC technician not a Mac technician. Hope this helps :) There also programs out there that can tell you more detail about your CD/DVD rom.

    Mine says "[0.0] D:\JLMS DVD-ROM XJ-HD166"

    And also on imgburn when i go to booktype, at the top it says I have Philips DVD+RW DVD8601.

    So i'm guessing its philips, but there is no philips option for booktyping! now what should i do?

    I think it's a re-badged LiteOn, but I'm not sure completely. *I think*, you can cross flash it to a LiteOn also, with the help of some fancy firmware ;-)

    Is your PC a Dell by any chance?

    Your drive isn't a burner, it's a ROM Drive..

    Lmao @ the fact someone has the nerve to actually accuse a mod of that.

    If anyone's spamming/post padding it's pepsimaxx, hence ddp's displeasement.
