How to know that the cd drive will be capable of writing and reading

From the make of vendor, and identification of its number , could one say, whether the drive is capable of read and write. My optiarc dvd rw 7530 a, from its name suggest that it is capable of reading and writing. But i could not burn image file, by using either imgburn or nero. Nero Nero also reports error verifying and imgburn saying layouts do not match
If the drive is capable, then it should have burnt the image. Pl

A re writable drive is a re writable drive, there is no arguing that point, it could be the media you are trying to use, you could have a bad iso file etc.

Download a fresh iso file of something and....

try this simple program it works perfectly, and always burn at the slowest possible speed.

Free ISO Burner

I believe Sony makes it, but there are all kinds of bad reviews on it.

If it doesn`t work, buy a new one of a different brand, dvd rw drives are a dime a dozen.
