YaST hardware detect shows drives as

DVD Writer 1040F (/dev/sr1)

I am reasonably certain that the first drive is a DVD also.
Is there any way to tell?

entering

wodim -dev=<device name> -prcap

at the CLI

should report the device capabilities

you may need to be root

man wodim

for more info

oops, should be ...

wodim dev=<device name> -prcap

Both versions of that command work here ;)
