Just asking about this legacy media the CD-ROM. Lots of medias today are DVD formats except for music medias. All my VCD's here at home original/copy, I got them distributed anywhere. So as my CD games, I make them ISO and burned it on a DVD. I cleaned all CD formats in this house. Softwares?.. hmmm I throw them somewhere because I hate it software easily changes version. and for drivers can be downloaded free on the manufacturers site. Except for music audio CDs. I kept them of course with some signature of the local artists here. hehe

I still have my CD-ROM drives here but they're not installed on my computer. I find it handy though especially when i install Windows because i think it's a lot faster than my DVD-RW ROM. I have some little files on CD though like my backup for pictures and some important softwares for my computer like drivers. I have Tool cds but i keep them because i'm afraid i might scratch it hehe. I don't any VCDs anymore because it's pretty much inconvenient to be playing movies then stopping in the middle just to change Disc 1 to Disc 2.

Yes, CD-ROM drives like 52x-60x reads faster than DVD-ROM drives. I see, so you still keep it for backup. That is great. And to VCDs, like 2-4 Discs or something. It's just the same as games. Like I have Silent Hill 2. Consumes 3 CDs and Metal gear 2: Substance consumes 5 CDs. I'm now relieved that they are in 1 DVD. xD

Yeah I remember my friend too. He's so excited to buy Metal Gear and it took a lot of discs so it costs him a lot too because locally it's on a per cd basis when it comes to costs.

No, I didn't say to throw away your CDs. It just I have a tiny home and I need space to other things. CDs have eaten a lot of space in my room, So I did putting them to DVDs and some to harddrives. Of course, We still have CD players incase. No, I don't want to be praised either. My point is how are people doing with CDs today now we have cheap DVDs in market. So how about you? ^^

hi friend, i could not join your group. i still have a cd-rw drive at home and i am using the cd-roms till date. so many new things are released in dvd format and for that i bring to my office and write them on cds if i need to use them at home. but i am finding it difficult and i have to get dvd drive to keep cope with. shortly cds will become obsolete, as it appears. happy mylotting..
