What Are Blank CDs And How Do They Work


Blank CDs are probably the oldest type of optical disks and are used to store data. Blank CDs can be used to store different types of data like audio files, movies, software, or just simple text files. The compact disk is an old technology and therefore, has low storage capacities that range from 700 MB to 900 MB.


The CD storage solutions use a very simple technology for their operation. The blank CDs are coated with a special dye that changes colour when it is exposed to a laser. When you try to write data on the disk the laser from the burner heats up the dye and changes its color. This color change creates a pattern of pits and falls on the CD surface, and represents the stored data.


Different Types of CD Storage Solutions


Unlike DVDs which come in a lot of different varieties, compact disks (CDs) only have two main types:


CD-R Disks: The CD-R disks or simply called recordable CDs are the most basic types and you can only write data on them once. After that, the data cannot be changed or erased.


CD-RW Disks: This is another type of compact disk, and unlike their recordable counterparts the CD-RW disks can be rewritten multiple times.


Apart from the above two types, another quite distinct type of disk are the printable blank CDs. They are a special type and the most exciting thing about them is that they can be printed on an inkjet printer. These disks are a great way to create custom labels for your CDs.
