Partial CAV (Constant Angular Velocity) The CLV (Constant Linear Velocity) method is generally used to write data on a CD-R disc. In writing using the CLV method, the disc rotation speed is adjusted to keep the data writing speed (data transfer rate) constant on all parts of the disc. In contrast, the CAV (Constant Angular Velocity) method exercises control so as to keep the disc rotation speed constant.

Technical Notes Buffer Underrun Protection Function CD-R/RW drives are equipped with a buffer memory, which temporarily stores data that is being transferred. When the buffer memory becomes empty due to a delay of data transfer for any reason, a writing error happens. Such condition is defined as buffer underrun, and such an error is defined as a buffer underrun error.
Technical Notes Track-at-Once (TAO) This method is used to write data on a disc on a track-by-track basis. A track can be defined as the smallest unit of area that contains an ordinary program, image file, text file, etc. This method enables you to add data to the same disc, one track of data at a time, as long as there is free space available on the disc.
Packet Writing This method is used to record data onto a disc on a file-by-file basis. This method divides a track into small segments called “packets” so that data can be written on a packet-by-packet basis, which means that you can write data in much the same way as you copy data to a floppy or hard drive.
