Entry from US English dictionary
An optical disk drive that can read and record CDs and can also read DVDs.
- In the end, that just cost too much, so we opted for a very inexpensive combo drive that can read DVDs but only write CD-R and CD-RW.
- All that we need to add is a processor, memory, a harddrive and a cdrom, cdrw or dvd/dvd-cdrw combo drive, and if needed, a floppy drive.
- Part of the problem is a perception by some vendors that adding a DVD read function is enough to make a combo drive competitive with a stand alone CD-RW drive.
