Hello,

  •  DVD Combo drives has limited execution. It only reads or plays CD and DVD  file. It is mostly used for DVD players. 
  • DVD-Rom performs burning such files into different formats, and also it plays and reads DVD and CD files. 
  • If you are planning to buy one of them, I suggest you to buy  the DVD-Rom, because it is very suitable for Personal Computers and has a useful features than DVD Combo drives. DVD-Rom has its advantage of performing burning files which is very useful in a Computer Unit  nowadays. It also reads CD and DVD which has also the same execution with DVD Combo drives.
  • Link below is a sample of a high speed DVD-Rom.

Based on the brands and models I previously encountered, DVD-ROM drive is a computer component that Plays pre-encoded movies and reads any DATA Written on a DVD-ROM Media and because it is on the higher ground than CD-ROM Drive, it can play movies and read DATA Written on a CD-ROM Media while on the other hand Combo Drives in general are drives that combine the DVD-ROM and CD-RW Drive’s functionality into one single drive. This drive will read and write data to a standard CD-ROM media and to add its ability, it has the DVD-ROM’s function as stated above. So to scale them up, combo drive is definitely on the higher ground.
