(1)  Go to Device Manager (right-click on My Computer; select Properties; click the Hardware tab; then click on Device Manager)

(2)  Expand Disk Drives (click on the "+" sign)

(3)  The make/model of your drive(s) will be shown there

(4)  Just "Google" the drive and you'll easily find the specs ==> or post the make/model here and we'll tell you
