Questions tagged [cd]

Compact discs (CDs) are a form of removable media. For questions about the "cd" command, use [cd-command], not this tag. CDs have been integral to the computer world for over two decades. CDs have the ability to store data and most computers today have an optical drive for reading and writing data to a CD.
