That's a CD-RW drive, it reads and writes cd DISC'S.... not a disk drive... This is a hard disk drive- http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...144-160&depa=0 .

no its a cd-rom/ cd burner only. it will read CD's, but not DVD's. you need to get a dvd-rom or dvd burner to read both cd-rom and dvd-rom discs for your cd & dvd games.

Plus I wouldn't trust sony as far as I could spit a had a friend who bought one and he had an awful time sending it for repairs I don't if it was just the luck of the draw. But anyway that's my opinion.
