So far, Blu-ray player manufacturers have included the ability for their units to playback standard DVDs, this is expected to continue. This means your current DVD library is playable on either a Blu-ray Disc. Also, when you play a standard DVD in a Blu-ray Disc player, you can view it at standard DVD resolution or have the player upscale the DVD playback signal to match 720p/1080i or 1080p mode that will be a better match for viewing on an HDTV.

With respect to standard CDs, almost all Blu-ray Disc players will play standard CDs/CD-R/RW discs. However, there are some exceptions to this, most notably on first generation models from Sony and Pioneer. If you desire CD compatibility, make sure you read the specifications or features brochure of the unit you are considering, to confirm this.
