CD-RW Drives

CDs are ideal for large files (most discs can store up to 700 MB), but may not be convenient for smaller files or those that frequently change. USB drives are more suitable for this purpose.

The most commonly used compact disc media is CD-RW (CD-ReWriteable). These discs can be written to many times, and often can be treated just like another drive on the computer. That is, you can drag and drop files onto the disc without writing a new session on the disc.

CD-R discs cannot be overwritten, but it is possible to create multiple sessions to fill up the disc. CD-R discs are usually less expensive than CD-RW discs, but are more suitable for archiving.

Drives capable of CD writing are available in all the centres. DVD-RW drives are available in the ABB, BSB, and JHE centres. The computers have either Roxio Easy CD Creator or Sonic Record Now installed.
