- From cd to dvd to flashdrive ...
Reading old disks takes an older computer with lots of 'ports' like mine.
Have 3.5", CD drive, DVD drive, and lots of USB and other ports for
memory cards, etc.
Makes a difference .. no 5.25" drive on this one, but have three other
OLD computers with 5.25 and 3.5 so can copy from one to the other.
