I am looking to purchase a new Dvd burner for my older computer so I can burn movies. I am not sure if I can actually burn movies on it though. I am not looking for anything special, just something to get the job done.

Do Dvd burners com with system requirement?

If so do my specs match up with them:

Intel Pentium II Processor
349 MHz, 640 MB of RAM
Windows XP Professional with service pack 2

I have enough space on my Harddrive and burning software. My harddrive is from a newer computer.
