We're not ignorant, you just wanted the impossible in the graphics section.

BTW, there is a CDROM section too.

buy a dual-layer DVD burner

Sony 8X DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive, Model DW-D18A SW Beige
$69.99 on newegg

if you want something faster, spend more.
if you want to spend less, get a slower one.

Why would anybody need a CDRW or a DVDRW, because I can write on a CD or DVD with a pen or pencil. Why waste money to buy a machine to write on it ? So basically I think I need a CD drive and I can do all things I want.

Why would you need a cd drive. Can't you read the cds yourself? You can already write on them.

No one could possibly be this stupid. Either you're pretending to be an idiot or you really are an idiot. My take is that you really are an idiot, but you're just posting idiotic statements such as the above in some lame attempt to piss people off.
