I have never heard of Dynex...

You should definitely be looking into a DVD writer (which most likely will be able to write CDs as well). Go for a better brand, like Sony or something...

Never heard of it but its a DVD/CD-RW combo meaning it can only burn cds. I would get a DVD writer which burns both and get a good name too cause the good one ony last like 10,000 hours or so.
