I guess each and every industry has its own language which determine a certain products,maybe thats the techconology term which best describe the writing of information on cd's.

My guess would probably be that because of the lasers in the CD-DVD drive, people would assume that the lasers are frying the disk. I don't know really. I guess it's just a catchy name that caught on quickly.

Hi bvdev234, I really have no idea why it called burning, I am not very good with new technology languages. Tamara
