Yes. DVD writers are capable of writing to ("burning") blank DVDs, and CDs as well. However, you cannot use a CD burner to burn a DVD, and in some cases read it. Here's the chain of command: Blu-ray burner - burns to Blu-ray discs, DVDs and CDs DVD burner - Burns to DVDs and CDs CD burner - burns only to CDs Hopefully that clears things up.
NO PlayStation 3 games are distributed on Blu-ray Disc, which is read by means of a blue-violet laser with shorter wavelengths than the red laser used for DVDs (on which PlayStation 2 games are made). The PlayStation 2's optical drive only has a red laser, so it is only capable of reading DVDs and CDs. The PlayStation 3 has both blue-violet and red lasers, allowing it to read CDs, DVDs, and BDs.
