I haven't opened the package yet. Will it install and download any Program on a CD/DVD or will it just read it only?

If you want to burn stuff onto a disc.It should say CD-r,CD+r. DVD-r,DVD+r, On the box. I think all modern CD drives will do everything you want to do. m 0 l mibix19 July 8, 2011 10:20:21 PM You can also go to the makers website for all the things it will do if you put the model number in. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
