T410 DVD drive

2011-12-21, 21:23 PM

hi i have recently bought a T410 Thinkpad and i want to create recovery disks. so i bougt some DVD+R disks and tried to create te disks but it seems that the DVD drive either doesn't support those disks or can't write. Is it possible that these new laptops in this day n age would have a dvd drive that can't write but only can read disks. Does T410 have a read only dvd drive?

Solved! See the solution

that means its just a DVD player, if you have USB flash drive you can create recovery media on it

edit; ROM = Read Only Memory
