 [Acronym] for __C__ompact __D__isc - __R__ead __O__nly __M__emory (see DiskVsDisc) 
-Standard discs hold 650[MB] or there abouts . The normal filesystem used on a [CDROM] data track is [ISO]9660. Hence the common use of "[ISO]" to refer to disc images and of the extension <tt>.iso</tt> for their filename.  
-Images can be created using mkisofs(8) and inspected using isoinfo(8) or isodump(8). Alternatively, you can mount an [ISO] like a regular device using the [Kernel]'s loopback support (but note that this requires SuperUser privileges):''''  
- <verbatim>  
- mount /path/to/image.iso /mnt/iso -o loop  
- </verbatim>  
-There are two competing standards to allow longer filenames and a few other things [ISO]9660 does not provide. The earlier one, originating from the [Unix] environment, is called Rock Ridge. The other one, made up my MicrosoftCorporation, is called Joliet. (Note that some characters that are valid on [Unix] FileSystems are not allowed on Joliet discs.)  
-For reading audio discs or writing CDs, you need access to the [CDROM] drive raw device. Under a [Linux] OperatingSystem, these are called <tt>/dev/hd''x''</tt> for [IDE] drives and <tt>/dev/scd''n''</tt> for [SCSI] drives. Under [FreeBSD] 5 and later, they're called <tt>/dev/acd''n''</tt> for [IDE] drives and ''??? (AddToMe)'' for [SCSI] drives.
