  • Page 48: Appendix

    Appendix Recording Methods Disc-at-Once (DAO) This method is used to write all data onto a disc in one operation. This method writes multiple pieces of data successively without placing a space between them, starting with the innermost track of the disc. Once data is recorded by this method, no data can be added to the same disc even if there is enough space left on it.
  • Page 49 Appendix 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, pictorial data, text data, etc. This method allows you to add data to the same disc, one track of data at a time, as long as there is free space left on the disc.
  • Page 50 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 record data in much the same way as you copy data to a floppy or hard drive by dragging and dropping it on your desktop.
