Is a DVD burner a compromise for CD burning?

I am about to get a completely new computer setup, and want to know if the quality or error rate is any better on a dedicated internal CD burner, or if a DVD burner is just as good for burning CDs.

It totally depends on the particular DVD burner you are using. The results that I get from my PX716 DVD burner are virtually identical to the results from my Premium CD burner.

The results I get from a Sony DVD burner fitted to a PC I bought recently are terrible though.

pioneer dvd writers have some of the best quality burns of any cd/dvd writer.
