Ignore what the device manager says it is a dual layer Rewriter. Device Manager often doesn`t give a full description of optical drives. It`s this model click here

The Device Manager merely recognises an optical drive whatever its type and (normally) lists the exact model - all that is required is the basic Windows CDROM driver, which is installed automatically.

The rewriter's function is controlled by burning software such as Nero.
