Just purchased a new PC.
I ordered the PC with multilayer DVD RW drive.
How can I check if it is multilayer?
The information given in the System Information is - SonyDVD RW DW-D22A.

This should be a simple one for someone!

Well I was going to say you could search the Sony website for specs but I could not find any reference to your drive there. Plenty of references at places wanting to sell it though. :thumbsup:

There should have been a user manual supplied with the system.. right?

Here is the nearest thing I could find to specs:
