It is possible to add necessary contents to and transfer the data via DVD. All the data storing, movie storage, back up etc can be done with DVD.
Use of drivers
For any hardware device to function properly it requires a driver. Thus DVD drive also requires a driver to perform the tasks of writing, burning, erasing, copying and editing the contents from and to the DVD. If the 'Device Manager' does not recognize the driver, the DVD drive will be inoperable. This driver will make the drive perform the desired function in response to the user commands.
As mentioned earlier the DVD has a large capacity of about 4.7 GB. There are two types of DVD namely the DVD-ROM and the DVD-RAM. In DVD- ROM the data will be stored only once which can only be viewed. User cannot alter the data thereafter. In DVD-RAM user can do editing, reading and erasing as many times as required. If properly used, DVD can act as the most reliable storage medium.
