You should have no problem writing to DVD, as far as I know RW applies only to the DVD itself.

It should say DVD RW if its a writer whats the model/make number

I think Combo is the operative word.
Just put a dvd in and try it.

It's odd that you say before your laptop 'crashed' you could burn DVDs. But if the spec is as you say then that would not have been possible as Fruit Bat /\O/\ says

I think it does have a RW dvd ok according to a couple of specs click here than his link which worries me as it takes you some where different first
