As no one could give me a definitive answer, I bottled out and took it back and 
asked for a refund. I bought a Lite-On from PC World - not the recommended 
model (in fact it doesn't have a model number) but it works and I'm happy with 
it. It hurts to buy from PC World, but I didn't want to pay Castle's price for 
a DVD rewriter.
