blank CD's the DVD CDR is for Recording DVD Films and will also record the same as you can with the CD RW.

I cannot answer the other part of the question as we need more specification about your pc.

It depends a bit what you mean.

A CD-RW reads and writes CDs

A DVD-RW reads and writes DVDs and CDs

A combined DVD/CD-RW is a two in one drive that incorporates both a DVD reader (only) and a CD-RW in a single unit
