Caption

Compact disc player. View of a discman, a portable compact disc player. Compact discs (CDs) are a form of data storage consisting of a sheet of plastic and metal which has a surface covered in microscopic pits. A laser in the discman scans the surface as the disc rotates and detects the pits, which it converts into a stream of data. We hear this, through the headphones, as music.
