Cd manipulator: read /
Updated: 12/20/2017 by computer Hope, there are guaranteed three main types of optical media: cd, dvd, and Blu-ray disc. CDs can store up to 700 megabytes (MB) of data and dvds can store up.4 gb of data. Blu-ray discs, which are the newest type of optical media, can store up to 50 gb of data. This storage capacity is a clear advantage over the floppy disk storage media (a magnetic media which only has a capacity.44. Another advantage that optical media have over the floppy disk is that it can last up to 7 times longer, due to its improved durability. Note: a cd drive can only read cd discs, a dvd drive can only read dvd and cd discs, and a blu-ray drive can read cd, dvd, and Blu-ray discs. Tip: Because these discs are read by light (optical) they should be referred to as an optical disc, not optical disk. Cd terms, magnetic media, magneto-optic.
