How Cd's Work

By Hedrick Lepsch

More than likely, you have moved past using CDs when it comes to listening to music. The majority of people now use their MP3 player to listen to music, rather than putting their CD in a CD player and listening to a CD.

People naturally gravitate toward what they are used to. For example, when students go into a classroom with unassigned seating, they tend to sit in about the same place every time.

When people sit in a movie theater, they tend to try to get similar seats each time because that's what they like. Lots of people held on to their vinyl records for a long time because of the nostalgia factor, even though it was hard to find a record player. CDs have been around since the late 1980s, and everything including data, music and movies come as a disc. The disc format has a lot of staying power, and people probably aren't going to let go of it anytime soon.

MP3 players and personal music devices are everywhere-sometimes it seems like everybody has them. Even so, nearly everybody still has a CD player, and will use whatever format they need to so they can get the music or other media they want. Cars usually come with a CD player, but not all of them come with an auxiliary input jack. As time goes on, things will change, but it will take quite some time to see a complete change.

A lot of people do not trust the safety and security of computers. Computers and external hard drives can fail, and many music lovers can't bear the thought of their music collections getting lost in cyberspace forever. Having CDs provides physical backups of your music in case of any type of cyber disaster. A lot of music lovers keep their CDs in safe places to try and keep them clear of other disasters like floods or fires.

There are many different sizes of CDs out there. When you know that you are going to be using CDs for storage, you should understand what size is going to be the best for you. Take time to understand how large the media is that you are looking to transfer. By doing this ahead of time, you can be sure that you are not going to start your project only to find that you do not have enough room to keep it on one CD.

Should you find yourself in this situation, you may be able to transfer your data onto more than one CD. If this happens, it is very important that you know how to label your CDs appropriately. You do not want to get frustrated looking for a piece of your media on a variety of CDs without knowing where it is.

When you look at the music industry and services that are out there, you might think that CDs are dead. CD duplication services are disappearing, and digital downloads are gaining popularity. CD replication may not be quite an industry, but discs aren't quite a niche market yet. They're still very popular, and it could end up that the two formats can coexist side-by-side.
