Optical Drives

In this early episode of GeekSpeak Lyle, John Tracy, and Sean Cleveland chat about optical drives, DVD Ram, DVD Rom, CD Rom, CD-R, CD/RW.

You can hear the stress in Lyle’s voice as he hosts this very early half hour episode of GeekSpeak.


Caller says they can’t copy Corel draw, and Sean joins the show, and suggests it might be copy protection. Lyle explains how.

Maybe a larger CD drive was used for copy protection.

Sean explains that the first CD drives, made by Meridian Data, were the size of washers and were cooled by air conditionals.
