Subject: RE: BS: Whats the Holes in CD's for then?
As pointed out above CD's work in essentially the same way that Records do in that the information is recorded sequentially as the disc revolves and read off in the same manner.

I recently acquired some dead CD ROM drives to obtain motors for making BEAM robots.
There are 3 Motors, one to rotate the disc, one to move the heads, and one to eject the CD.
