Get yourself a copy of CDBurnerXP, install it and start it and select burn Data Disc. Then under "Recorder" select "Device", and there it'll show you what formats it can write to, and what formats it can read.

don't be fooled by the title cd burner xp, as it is a great free program that works on all windows platforms xp, vista, and windows 7, both the 32 and 64 bit versions, it can burn cds dvds and blue ray discs. It has a lot of good features, is user friendly, and as rindi states you can find out what kind of media that your drive can burn. Get your copy here: http://cdburnerxp.se/en/home

That one should support the following, but it is always better to verify with the burning tool I linked to earlier:

dvd+r, dvd-r, dvd+rw, dvd-rw, dvd+r DL, dvd-r DL, dvd-RAM, and all types of CDs and BlueRay Discs.
