Can a Dvd Burner also Play Dvd's

Hi,
I am looking for a light-On External Dvd Burner. But I was wondering if a
Dvd Burner will also play Dvd's on my computer.

I have a very old NEC that does. So I guess my question is will any dvd
burner also play dvd's on my computer.

Thank You For Your Help.

WOW,
Thanks for the quick reply Guys. One more quick question. Do any external drives come already booktyped or would I have to download and do it myself. I am not very experienced in that area and don't want to brick my drive.

Any models any advice would be GREAT...
Thanks Again You Guys Are Awesome....

Of course they can,. but only if you have dvd player software installed.

VLC tool and mediaplayerclassic are good ones.
