One quick way that comes to mind is to use Google. Type in the model name you gave us, and see what turns up.

There are also some software programs that will figure this out.

But be sure to find out if it's a DVD-R or DVD+R drive or both while you're at it. There is a difference, and -R media won't work in +R only drives and vise versa. You don't want to get stuck with a bunch of useless blanks.

Ive looked but it only gives info on the 'B' model as opposed to the 'A' model. And im still not sure about the D-, D+. Do you know any links to software that can help me determine this?

Besides, I haven't found 1X media.

D+, D- as in DVD+RW and DVD-RW ?
DVD questions answered Here. Scroll down to find your topic.

AS for maximum speed, specifications for model A are most likely the same as those for model B. Anything in the owners manual ? Your burning app may be able to detect the maximun speed.
