Hmm.. I didn't know that. Well, I guess you learn something new every day. Question is though can it burn to regular DVD R or RWs?

It can do both.

Did you try burning any CDs since this all happened or no?

If it won't burn either then odds are your drive is just shot. There really is not "installing" of a optical drive. Windows just sees it and goes.

If you got the basic package with that it burns cd but only reads dvd.
You paid over $1400.00 dollars for that thing and you're having problems with it already? Send that pos back to dell and let them either fix or replace it.
