cd-rom disk vs cd-rom : Common Errors in English

About cd-rom disk vs cd-rom

“CD-ROM” stands for “compact disc, read-only memory,” so adding another“disc” or “disk” is redundant. The same goes for “DVD” (from “DigitalVideo Disc” or “Digital Versatile Disc"”—there are non-video versions). Don’t say “give me that DVD disk,” just “give me that DVD.”

cd-rom Meaning(s)

  • (n) a compact disk that is used with a computer (rather than with an audio system); a large amount of digital information can be stored and accessed but it cannot be altered by the user
