cdrom drive- can only read cds.

dvd burner - burn dvds and cds but can't not read cds or dvds.

Combo drive -
1) if it's a cd burner then it's probably refering that it
can burn cds and read like a cdrom drive or dvd rom.
2) if it's a dvd burner it's probably refering that it can burn dvds and something else like dvd rams.

combo drives are just saying that it can do more than one thing.
