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 Writing Methods Disc-at-Once (DAO) This method is used to write all data onto a disc in one operation. It writes multiple pieces of data without placing a space between data, starting with the innermost track of the disc. Once data is written by this method, no data can be added to the same disc even if 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.
Technical Notes Constant Linear Velocity (CLV) The disc rotation speed is adjusted to keep the data transfer rate constant while writing/reading data. Constant Angular Velocity (CAV) The data transfer rate is adjusted to keep the disc rotation speed constant while writing/reading data.
