DVD-ROM Content—Adding Computer Files on a DVD

DVD is a flexible medium for creating and sharing interactive presentations, but the possibilities aren't limited to what you can view on a television. Thanks to the nature of the DVD disc, you can also include files on a DVD that people can access using their computers. This feature is known as DVD-ROM.

DVD-ROM is essentially the equivalent of CD-ROM. ROM stands for read-only memory, which means that you can put data on the disc that can be read by a person with the appropriate drive in his computer. The most typical use for CD-ROM is the discs you use to install software on your computer. Software manufacturers haven't completely switched over to DVD-ROM discs yet, but DVD-ROM drives are becoming much more common in computers, so it's just a matter of time before DVD-ROM drives and discs become as popular as CD-ROMs.
