CD stands for compact disc and is used to store picture files, text/word files, audio files, webpage files, pdf files, short video files, and folders of any of these types of files among many others. DVD stands for Digital Versatile Disc (formerly Digital Video Disc) and can store what CD's plus some file types (formats) that CD's can not. DVD's can contain much larger amounts of data and the quality of the data when used directly from one, versus copying the data to your computer and using it without the CD/DVD, than that of a CD. Usually we use DVD's for movies, like the one you rent or buy and put in you DVD player, and for games that are very high quality like 3-d games. A Drive is a piece of hardware that stores files or runs software that stores files. In other words, you CD Drive is like a CD player for your computer. The R in CD's and DVD's stands for recordable. If you have a CD-R Drive or DVD-R Drive you can record /write/burn files to it but only once; you must make sure that you put a CD-R or DVD-R (the disc that will contain your music or other files) in the CD-R or DVD-R Drive. RW on the CD or DVD stands for rewritable and this means that the disc can be re-burned/re-recorded/rewrote multiple times. If your CD Drive or DVD Drive is titled CD-RW, CD-RAM, DVD-RW or DVD-RAM you can record those types of discs. You can use a DVD-RW Drive or DVD-RAM to record/burn and even re-burn CD's, but CD-RW Drives and CD-RAM Drives can not burn DVD's.
Try to burn a CD. If it doesn't work, then your CD burner doesn't work.

I do, thanks for asking. No, you can't borrow it. If you're trying to determine if YOU have a CD burner, usually looking at the front of it will tell you.
Most modern computers have a CD and DVD drive that is capable of reading, writing and burning data. You can tell if you have a DVD burner on your computer by inserting a blank disc into the drive. If a prompt appears asking you to burn a disc, it means your computer can burn data for you.
Most likely, your computer is not a CD-RW burner, so it can play it, but not edit things on it. My suggestion, put it into a CD-RW burner or DVD Player with burner, then try again.
