Go to the Apple Menu>About This Mac>More Info button, and check your ATA devices....that'll tell you what kind of drives you have. If it's only CD-ROM and you want an internal burner, you'll have to switch yours out w/ a new one.

If you have the money, I'd recommend and DVD and CD burner, Pioneer seems to be the leader in these.

CD burners.....most of 'em are pretty good these days.
