Is the Compact Disk Recordable ReWritable Drive the same as a burner?

I was trying to use it to make a laser pointer that can light a match. The pic is similar to the one I have, but not the same.

a CD burner won't work, you need a DVD burner
can you burn DVDs with your burner?

It was a spare part, so I have no idea. It says nothing about a DVD on it, just CD

A writeable drive is a burner, or have I missed the point? The subject confuses me!

I wasn't sure if it was considered a burner or not
