A "flash tool" is a piece of software that enables you to update the "Firmware" of any item that has a permanent set of instructions built-in, eg. CD-ROM, CD/DVD-RW or a modem are all examples of devices that have firmware (An inbuilt instruction set that enables the device to use common instructions although the device itself may have its own way of doing things.).

DVD writers can also write CD's but not vice-versa.
