Does the standard Dell Inspiron 530 Come With Dual Layer DVD ROM?

Just wondering if the Dell Inspiron 530 I bought a couple of months back has a dual layer DVD ROM drive? I'm not sure how to find out - I didn't upgrade it or anything while purchasing so it's the standard one that came with it. 

 

Many thanks in advance

Look in the Device Manager..........


Start | Control Panel | System in classic view | Hardware tab | Device Manager


Click on the (+) next to DVD/CD-ROM drives.  Post the brand and model of the drive.

Thanks for the reply Skybird! 

 

The DVD drive is TSST Corp DVD+-RW TS-H53B 

 

The reason I need to know is because there's a piece of music software I need to install that requires a dual layer drive for some reason

I am guessing the model number you posted should be TS-H653B and
not TS-H53B.  If so, it is a dual-layer burner.  The User's Guide
is here ........

Just to note: Dual-layer DVD media can be variable in quality.

Yeah you're right I missed the '6' out - sorry about that. 

 

That's a relief, it's purely for installing off a DVD ROM, no writing involved.

 

Thanks a lot for the help!!!!! Smiley Happy 

 

Take care
