I have quick books on 2 computers I recently bought another computer that I am going to use only for my company, my question is, can I take the quick books off of my other 2 computers and transfer my data to the new one?

   Try installing Quick Books on the third computer, then make a Quick Books backup to a CD or removeable media from one of the first two computers.
   Put the CD in the third computer and copy the backup to the Quick Books folder on the third computer (or you can create a special folder for the backups), and then open them with Quick Books on the third computer.
   If you have different data on the first two computers and you want to put it all on the third computer, I am not sure how that would happen because I have not done that.  If Quick Books has an import feature, I would think that would do it.

What kind of CD do I want to use? One like I would put music on?

   You have to have a CD drive that can write to CDs.
   If you do, any type of writeable CD would work.  You can buy them at the store.  They are called CD/R and CD/RW.  The CD/R can only be written to once.  The CD/RW can be written to over and over again.
