CD-ROM sürücüsü. An electromechancial device that reads data on CD-ROMs. Most CD-ROM drives have a SCSI
interface, although some are connected to a PC via a controller for a disk drive. Data is read through a small laser that is focused on the surface of the CD-ROM through optical mirrors in the read/write head. A spindle and drive motor revolve the CD-ROM, so all data, which is stored in spirals from the center, can be read.
