II  Removable Media

We will cover CD-ROM technology and learn how information is read from and written to a CD-ROM, including the various formats that are used. You will then be shown how to evaluate a CD-ROM’s performance and how to decipher the "X-factor."

Following that, we will discuss a more proprietary, yet commonly used form of removable media, the ZIP drive. You will be shown how this technology improves many of the concepts behind the floppy disk, allowing it to store over 200 times more data.

We will then discuss removable tape media. You will learn the advantages and shortcomings of both QIC and DAT tape storage methods. Finally, you will learn how to overcome the many challenges that can arise from using tape media.
