Without knowing specifics (laptop make, model, etc.) based on what you said, my answer would be yes to CD-R, CD-RW, and DVD+R, but no to any other format. Early adopters, and those manufacturers that go inexpensive, only included drives that are/were capable of writing to CD-R, CD-RW and DVD+R media. If able to write to other media types, it would specifically state CD-R, CD-RW, DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW, or it might just state DVD+/-RW. My experience has been, if it isn't specified, it isn't supported. However, depending on the laptop make/model, it may be possible to upgrade the drive to one that supports these additional formats.
