A DAO is where you can ask for data and with a DTO you transfer the asked data from one layer to another.

A Data Access Object abstracts and encapsulates logic needed to access a given data source, such as a relational database, and performs these data access operation on behalf of a business object. See CoreJ2EE Patterns - Data Access Object for more details.

A (Data) Transfer Object is basically a (serializable) data container that encapsulates the (partial) state of a business object. So, a DAO may use a DTO to transfer the persistent state of a business object to and from a particular data source. See CoreJ2EE Patterns - Transfer Object for more details.

With other words, the only thing they have in common is that they both have the words "Data" and "Object" in their name.
