CD-MRW (CD Mount Rainier ReWriting)
This method is a new standard of packet writing for a CD-RW disc and supports
defect control by the drive, background formatting, and disc ejecting during
formatting. It enables you to use a CD-RW disc like a floppy disk.
Formatting a CD-RW disc using CD-MRW reduces its storage capacity by about 150MB
since CD-MRW requires exclusive disc space.
Constant Linear Velocity (CLV)
The disc rotation speed is adjusted to keep the data transfer rate constant while
Constant Angular Velocity (CAV)
The data transfer rate is adjusted to keep the disc rotation speed constant while
writing/reading data. The Full CAV method employs CAV all through data writing/
The CAV method is employed for inner tracks of a disc and the CLV method for
outer tracks while writing/reading data.
