As time goes by the technology evolve so fast. The CD's before was one of the famous storage device for Movies, Music, Softwares, Data nd Files until the USB Flash Disk and memory cards exist. Do you think CD's will be totaly replaced by USB Flash Disk and memory cards? What do you think is the differences between a new storage devices compared to old one like CD's? How important CD's are? I need your opinion about this.

I think the CD will still in used for some years; even the technology is growing fast. This is because the companies especially dealing with the music need more investment if they really want to change into other resources. I do not think that the USB or memory cards will be preferred as it will create more issues like pirated software.

CD's are nearly wiped out already. but i think dvds and blu ray disks are here to stay for a while . Moreover because they are good devices for permanent data storage. USB's cant be trusted for permanent storage as they are more vulnerable to virus attacks. And dvds are more compatible in the commercial world for games and movies :)

Having been around computers for a long time (I remember tape drives), I honestly think that we are still years away from seeing CDs disappear. And if they do disappear, their replacement is going to DVD and not flashdrives. Not even "cloud" storage is going to replace them any time soon. Basic economics, such as price, will keep CDs around for a least another decade. As long as it costs as much to buy a single flashdrive as it does to buy a hundred CDs, the CDs will continue to be used.
