Optical Disk Drive

Optical drives retrieve and store data on optical discs like CDs, DVDs, and BDs (Blu-ray discs), any of which hold much more information than previously available portable media options like the floppy disk.

The optical disk drive normally goes by other names like a disc drive, ​ODD , CD drive, DVD drive, or BD drive.

An optical disk drive is a piece of computer hardware about the size of a thick soft cover book. The front of the drive has a small open button that ejects and retracts the drive bay door. This is how media like CDs, DVDs, and BDs are inserted into and removed from the drive.

Popular optical drive formats include CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD-R DL, DVD+R DL, BD-R, BD-R DL & TL, BD-RE, BD-RE DL & TL, and BDXL.
