Without totally disassembling it and putting in new guts, no.

I suggest going out and buying a burner if they won't take back this drive.

pretty much because without a hell of a lot of equipment determination and several degrees its probably never gonna burn dvds. just go buy a DL dvd burner and then at least u can do on the fly burning using the first drive you bought. or u could use it as an ugly paper weight, its up 2 u.
