Understanding High-Speed CD Drives And How They Work


Computer-compatible CD Drives are very simple pieces of equipment. They were used in computers to read and write compact disks (CDs). Most of the computers in that era were provided with internal CD drives, however, external CD drives were also available for people who wanted more flexibility.


The CD drives work using a very simple principle and uses a laser for data reading and writing. When a user tries to write data in the disk the optical disc drive uses a red laser to create microscopic pits on the surface of the compact disk. These pits on the disk surface represent the data, and whenever the data reading is required the CD-ROM drives again shine a light on the disk surface and reads the reflected light from the pits to decrypt the data.


Different Types of CD Drives


Since CD drives are a very old technology, you can imagine that there won’t be many types. Fundamentally, high-speed CD drives can be classified as internal CD drives and external CD Drives. Furthermore, we can also categorize the CD drives based on their intended purpose. According to this, there are two main types, the CD-ROM and CD-R drives.


The CD-ROM readers are the older and more basic version and can only read compact disks. On the contrary, the CD-R drives are more functional and can be used to both read and write data on the disks.
