    The combo drive I can pretty much guarentee is a CD writer only, and has DVD playback. I'd have to see the model to be sure, but... 98% sure.

    So 16x DVD+/-RW it is.

    Aren't all DVD writer drives capable of reading and writing CDs these days?

    Yes, but I assumed the question was posed due to the fairly large price difference. In fact, if I look them up and find they are quality drives, I might buy both for on-the-fly burning. ^^

    You can also buy a multi-DVD/CD writer drive, the one with this stuff into it:

    DVD-R/+R -RW/+RW -DL/+DL -RAM -ROM CD-R -RW -ROM

    The value of a multi-DVD/CD burner vs. DVD burner/CD burner only is very little this days...
