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!!!!! :smileyhappy: 

     

    Take care
