Yes both can copy information about the disc. Their main difference is that in CD-ROM once a certain file is burned into disc the information can't be tampered or overwrite, while CD-RW/DVD-Rom is rewritable and can be tampered or overwrite the data inside the disc.

Cd ROM when the data are written on it can't be erased, in cd RW means it is rewritable, on it when data are written can be erased or edited and DVD Rom when data are written on it cannot be erased.Yes they are both able to copy information on to a disc.

Cd rom is just a device which is capable is copying the data and open the data but CD/RW stands for cd read and write,write in the sense you write the data on to plane disk or empty disk. It is same in DVDs also so hope you get it now.

DVD Rom can hold a lot more information and was originally for movies but can hold a lot more pictures or music than CD Rom. Peace The devices only allow you to use CD or DVD's. Peace

The CD-Rom only reads CD(music, software, etc.). The CDRW/DVD-ROM reads and writes CD also reads DVD(movies)but not writes DVD. It is also called as DVD combo.CD ROM cannot able to copy the information on the disk.
