I have an old desktop computer with a CD-RW drive.

If I buy a notebook with a "DVD-Dual Double Layer Module" will the new notebook be able to read the CDs created on my old computer?

Thanks in advance.

That's a relief! :thumbs:

And will my notepad DVD be able to write in CD format (so that I can use my old computer to read disks that were created by my new notebook)?

Yes.

DVD Writers can read/write CDs, DVDs
CD Writers can read/write CDs.

Doesn't matter what computer wrote the CDs, or what with, both your DVD and CD writers should be able to read them. And likewise, they should both be able to produce them.

If they were created using "packet writing" non-standard CD format software (InCD, DirectCD etc) and such software is not installed on the "new PC", they will not be readable.

Yeah, but usually the company that writes the packet writing software will have a reader version available for a free download.
