    At its heart, the Wii's optical drive is basically an off the shelf DVD drive, which from a technical standpoint are perfectly capable of reading data from a CD. However the Wii would need supporting software (and probably Nintendo would have to pay CD licensing fees).

    Sorry I was off. The DVD drive is a red laser. Anyways, the main difference is the wavelength. CDs have a wavelength of 780nm and DVD have a wavelength of 650nm.
