    I can't see a model number on the box, but there should be info on system requirements on the box, or web site. As long as you meet the minimum system requirements, it should work. But you should add at least 256mb more RAM to your system. Windows XP runing on 128mb is not a good idea, 256 is considered minimum-512 better. Adding 256 would give you 384mb. If you can afford 512, that would take you to 640mb. Trying to burn CDs and DVDs with only 128mb will be very frustrating as your system will bog down, may freeze and crash. Charlie

    it will work but no where near the speeds indicated on the box. On your system, for error free burning I would guess DVD burning at 2X would be needed. Even then you would need to shut down everything except the basics.
    To be honest either upgrade your system of buy a single layer 4 speed burner. Use the savings to boost your memory.
    PS dual layer blanks cost nearly as much as buying the DVD. 99% of movies will fit on a single layer DVD as long as the junk is left out. Using a program like DVD shrink you can do that.
    Take control of your life. Leave others to control their own.

    I remember reading that it says on the box; PentiumIII something but didn't mention Pentium Celeron.
