Paper Abstract

More than 10 years have passed since CD-R was developed in 1988. Back then, annual sales in 1998 were reported to be 600M units and sales for 1999 were projected to be over 1 billion units. CD-R has clearly become the most popular recordable optical media in the world today. The reasons for this success are related to the fact that, from its inception, CD-R was highly feasible, which was directly related to its function, its format and its production methods, all of which are very similar to those for CD Audio and CD-ROM.
