    You can look at system profiler to see what you have.

    Or just go to the apple icon on the menu, then about this mac then click the system information button.

    Based on what you posted you have a DVD burner.

    Also 10.5.x can burn DVD data disc by default. There are many ways to go about this here is one:

    Highlight the folder you want copied. In finder go File > then there will be an option towards the bottom to burn those folders.

    You can also set up a burn folder so you can drag files to there then click burn. Or set up a folder with a predetermined size (CD/DVD) and drag things there. Or use Disc Utilities.
