this laptop has all the stickers saying the dvd drive supporting +/- rw but i cant use +rw or +r.
when i did a little search and found the advent 6000 doesnt support +rw. does anyone have this laptop? can u use +rw disk ? can i return it to pcworld and ask them why? ( bought in 2004 Xmas) refund? or anything i can ask them to do?

Looks like it will not write to the + format

If the unit says it will, you have a case to take it back, although the store could legitimately argue that after 5 months without notifying them of the issue you have accepted the goods. Is there any reason you particularly want to write to +R and not -R

The first link will not paste.

Search for Advent 6000 in the dialogue box and then go to the hardware options of the returned list.

next time when you buy whatever from a supplyer make sure you try all the features as soon as possible..........that is my advise........

If the specification of the PC is different to the one that you had seen when you had bought it, there is a breach of contract that is not necessarily forgiven due to the length of time it has taken to discover it. However provided that you can adequately prove that you were informed that it had DVD-R capability you have the right to a remedy. Not necessarily a full refund - a partial refund, exchange or some other remedy that would make up for the loss of performance.

Have you taken this up with PC World yet?
