Create CD on DVD media?
 
I have a few CD-Rs and a whole bunch of DVD-Rs. Can I burn a music CD on a DVD-R that will work like a CD in any CD players. Or can I only use a CD-R?

DVD's use denser grooves and a laser of lower wavelength, so a CD laser head can't read DVD's, it only sees a blur of finer details. The data format for audio DVD's is also quite different. If you have an audio CD player in your hi-fi, car etc., you can expect it to not be able to read audio DVD's for both of these reasons.
