Optical Disk Drives (cd and dvd drives)


 

Any time you put a CD, DVD or data disk into your optical disk drive, you are putting a driver to work. That driver will read the encoded information on the disk and translate it into information that that the computer can understand. When DVD-roms replaced CD-roms, many people had to upgrade their whole drive. However, today, an updated driver can reveal features of the most current disks so that you won’t have to touch your hardware. Upgrading is quicker, simpler and free.
