Caption: Computer user with CR-ROM drive. A man seen playing a game on a personal computer, to which is linked a CD-ROM drive (lower right). The Compact Disc Read-Only Memory (CD-ROM) is a means of storing very large amounts of digital information. Digital files such as those needed to play complex computer games with animation sequences take up enormous tracts of computer memory. The reading speed of the CD-ROM system means that such large segments may be down-loaded when needed during the game, rather than being resident in the computer's limited Random Access Memory (RAM).
