As far as I know they are not universal. First of all I believe they have a different ammount of pins. I could be wrong on it though so don't take my word on it. DDR ram operates much faster than SDram though so if you have a DDR motherboard you're going to undoubtably fry the SDram and if you have DDRam on an SDram motherboard DDRram is going to have to go slower than it can go so there will be a conflict of some sort between there.

for sure you will not be able to mix types, you cant even mix different speeds of ddr let alone different types. i believe sdram is only made in simm boards and 168-pin dimm boards. all ddr ram is made in 184-pin dimm boards (i think) outside of rimm's.
