Paper Abstract

Communication to application developers and data users of CD-R characteristics such as data integrity, media reliability and life expectancy should be considered as engineers create optical storage media that can store more data. Though the point of view of this paper is primarily based on the views of a few experienced CD-R end-users, optical engineers should consider implementation of the following design recommendations explained in this paper. The author's extensive experience in using CD-R technology and their substantial interaction with other CD-R users provides a rare perspective on CD-R characteristic information. Although this paper is directed to optical engineers, it is written with the expectation that a broader readership will also benefit from the information presented. The paper presents to the engineering community potential methods of communicating CD-R characteristics with an emphasis on the types of information that would be useful to CD-R users.
