Default Can I burn video with a 24X DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive

My current laptop has a 24X DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive. I'm able to burn audio files can I also burn video or movies on this as well?

You can burn anything on a DVD burner, including CDs.

Actually it's a combo drive, and if my memory serves correct you can only view DVDs but not burn them as the optical drive only writes CDs.

You could burn a Video-CD, but not all DVD players accept VCD's, so there'd be compatibility issues there.

Aye, just figured I'd bring it up since it is an option...just not a widely compatible option .
