    cd-rw drives do everything cd drives do.

    if you are meaning audio cds yes they will play them.

    if you want to play audio cd then if you have a
    headphone jack on front of drive you can listen
    from there. if you want to listen through your
    computers sound system then the audio output
    (on rear of cd drive) has to be plugged into
    your computer sound system input.

    if you don't know if plugged in then just give it
    a try. in windows some versions/installations
    will have a cd player

    start -> programs -> accessories -> entertainment
    -> cd player
