  • 1. Optical backing storagesuch as CDs and DVDs
    Advantages
    they can be transported from one computer to another. Both can be used to store computer data.
    DVDs are used to hold very large files (several Gb) such as movie films.
    Disadvantages
    CDs tend to be used for large files (butsmaller than 1Gb) which are too big for a floppy disc to hold such as music and general animation.
    Praew
  • 2. CD ROM and DVD ROMCD-ROM - Compact Disc - Read Only Memory. DVD ROM - Digital Versatile Disk – Read Only Memory[ This means you can only read from the disc, not write or store data onto it.]
    Advantages
    Disadvantages
    They are relatively tough as long as the surface does not get too scratched.
    CD-ROM's hold large quantities of data (650 MB).
    DVD-ROM's hold large quantities of data (4.7 GB).
    It can’t be used more than once.
    You cannot save files to a CD-Rom or DVD-Rom (although CD-R and CD-RW discs now exist which can be written to)
    Praew
  • 3. CD R and DVD R

    Praew
  • 4. CD RW/DVD RW
    Advantage
    Disadvantage
    DVD-RW (DVD-rewritable) can be rewritten multiple (1000+) times.
    the disc is not ruined and can still store data by erasing the faulty data.
    These new CD-RW media are labeled as "High Speed" rewritable CD. The same has happened for the DVD-RW too.
    650MB unformatted CD becomes a 540MB when it has been packet-write formatted.
    the format process of a CD RW takes a little longer (for example more than 30 minutes with a 2x-speed CD drive).
    Praew
  • 5. DVD RAM(DVD-Random Access Memory)
    Advantage
    DVD-RAM media have been used in computers as well as camcorders and personal video recorders
    Can be rewritten over 100,000 times
    Holds more data when using Double Sided discs than dual-layer DVD+RW and DVD-RW
    Disadvantage
    DVD-RAM media have always been more expensive than other types of DVD.
    Less quality than DVD+RW and DVD-RW.
    Praew
