A DVD RW drive will write to both DVDs and CDs

There are essentially three types of DVD you can write to DVD+ (write once)DVD-(write once) and DVD RW (write to alot of times.

A DVD+- drive will write to all three disks.

Yet another type is DVD RAM not too many drives can write to DVD RAM

Yes if you have a DVD RW drive on your computer you can write DVDs. Its up to you what type to use, that is what the + and - are, different types of disk.
Some standalone DVD players (I mean the ones connected to your TV) will only be able to read one type.
Oh you need a program to burn the disks as windows own burner can only do CDs.

I assume you are having problems writing to DVD format, which you will need DVD writing software for. Personally I use NERO 6, normal windows XP defaults to CD writing.
