Can a DVD drive play CD discs?

No, MS Office is a separate application suite. It usually costs roughly double to triple the price of Windows XP. Should you find yourself with a branded PC or laptop that comes pre-loaded with a licensed version of Windows XP but no MS Office, you may purchase the suite, or use the free-of-cost and freedom based Open Office suite, that rivals MSOffice in almost all features and is compatible with it. Regarding the DVD drive: yes, it is backward-compatible with all types of CD discs.
