no, but you may be able to download a firmware update, however, there is the chance that it may kill the drive in the upgrade process.

Search google for "Firmware update [drive name and model]"

Actually, if I recall correctly, Lite-On uses similar hardware in ALL their drives. So the only difference in some of their drives is the firmware.

BUT

You can never make a CD-RW into a DVD-RW. The way the reading/writing works is similar, but too different to just upgrade firmware to get it working.

Shocked How much money do you have not to buy a DVD burner ? I bought mine (it's a Samsung 8X DL) many months ago at MicroCenter for only $40.00, probably one of the most well-spent money I spent in a long time. I remember buying a CD-RW/DVD-ROM combo drive for $50.00 sometime before that at a different retailer. Go figure. They still sell them for that cheap if there's one around you.
