How to tell the difference between a CD-ROM and a DVD
Sometimes it's hard to tell whether a disc is a CD-ROM or a DVD, especially when the publisher gives no indication. Here's one way to tell when you can't tell any other way:
- Put disc in your computer and wait for it to load up.
- Open Windows Explorer. Find your CD/DVD drive (usually the D: drive) under "My Computer."
- Right-click on the CD/DVD drive icon. A menu will pop up.
- Choose Properties from the menu. This will open a window with technical information about the disc in the drive.
- Check the size on the Properties window. If it's under 700 MB, it's probably a CD-ROM. If it's over 700MB, it's almost certainly a DVD (a DVD can hold up to 4 GB of data, while a CD can only hold up to 700 MB).
