When trying set up your computer, many people would opt to trust a technician or some computer geek in your block to set it up for them. But if you have knowledge on computer, you can actually do it yourself. For some, it is actually more self-fulfilling when he or she accomplishes things without asking any help from other people.
But of course the would need a some sort of guide to help them get out of a fix or better yet for them not to get into one while their trying to do-it-themselves. And when it comes to computers, having that personal touch on trying to set up your new found project is a feather in the hat. Because of the complexities that setting up a computer offers a regular do-it-yourself guy would have tons of fun in doing so. One of the computer hardware components that you can do it by yourself is the removable media storage such as CD and DVD.
After setting up the computer, the next thing you’ll have in mind is how our going to use it. If it’s your first time to own a computer chances are haven’t really given much about the part about transferring and saving all the data on a secondary storage device. So what is a secondary storage device? This would be the part of your computer system that stores files and folders for a longer period of time and it is less volatile than storing it directly on your computer. Other than that it offers you three things, convenience, security and space savings.
The removable storage devices include the floppy disk, which can store data files of up to 3.55 megabits. But if you have a bigger sized file like a photo or a song where can you store that? There is one other thing that we call a CD or a compact disc. The CD looks like a smaller version of the 45s. This piece of silicon can store up to 700 mb or 80 minutes of songs and video on its data area. But to write anything on this piece of glass you will need a very special kind of equipment. And that is the CD-writer/rewriter or a DVD-writer/rewriter, this piece of equipment allows us to burn on the data to the data surface of the CD or DVD.
Today, there are a lot of do-it-yourself kits available in the market for installing the equipment and the software of this product which include the wiring diagrams, the legends of the wiring and the connection ports that you need to hook it up to, to get things started.
