    You'll have to find that out on yourself bud.
    Every system setup is different, trial & error thing.
    But if you meet the system requirements,
    Windows 7 system requirements

    You should be fine.

    Glad you guys got that straightened out, I was gonna jump in there because I was near certain that CDs would not work. Must use DVD.

    I, like epk, have not used DVD-R or DVD-RW, but I think either would work. I have only used DVD+R. It is my understanding that CDs will not work.

    Kupalski, is your optical drive a DVD burner? Make sure it will write to a DVD before you go out and buy the necessary disc. Typically, if a drive is actually labeled "DVD ROM" it will only read a DVD. It should say "DVD recorder" or "DVD-RW" somewhere on the front.

    Good deal, you're ready to burn DVDs. Being very technical, that is not commonly called a DVD ROM (ROM indicates "Read Only Memory"). Yours has write capacity and therefore is a DVD Writer, or DVD-RW Drive.
