Can I write to CD's with a DVD RW drive?

  Done and dusted 11:56 17 Oct 2005

I have been saving photos on CD's as a backup and also to take to Jessops for printing. I want to continue to use CD's in this way but have just purchased a new computer which only has DVD and DVD RW. Is it possible to burn to a CD in the DVD drive or will I need to purchase CD RW hardware?

A DVD writer will write to and play back CDs as well as DVDs. You may need to use a different software burning package though. I don't think the Win XP burning software will burn to DVD.

You can get Nero Version 6 for £3.49 plus postage from: click here

Once it is installed you can update it for free to the latest version from click here
