Hello, I purchased a powerbook G4 12'' second hand and I don't know if it has a superdrive or combo drive. When I look up the model number it says combo, yet I burned a DVD. I also burned a cd-rw and it asked be the speed and it showed 24x, yet apple says only the combo drives can burn cds at 24x and superdrive can at 16x. How can i know?

The model number is powerbook6,4

or A1010.

Heres what the disc burning section looks like:Picture 1.png
