    Hey HaiTac this is just a combo Dvd-/Dvd+RW drive that still burns only Dual Layered Dvd+R.The Dvd-R option is not possible yet.The specs of it:

    The drive is cool in all,but there is no Dvd-RW Dual layer or Dvd+RW Dual layer either.I don't think it is possible since there hasn't been any update.I am sure there will be one though in the near future.
