Compact disc's are undoubtedly the most popular mechanism for software distribution today. And with the exploding base of CD-ROM drives, they have become the most cost-effective distribution method of today's larger applications. CD's exist in numerous and sometimes confusing formats. However, CD's allow for quick(er) installations and data retrieval.

Duplication occurs in two ways. In either case, the data and resulting format on the CD is identical.
Stamped CD's are produced by high pressure injection molding from a nickel-plated master.
"One-offs" are CD-Recordable's (CD-R) that are individually burned by a CD writer attached to a personal computer. The data (or image file) is written to the CD-R from the computer's hard disk.

When considering CD versus diskette replication, remember that, depending on the quantity, CD's are generally more cost-effective for applications requiring more than 3 or 4 diskettes. In addition, falling manufacturing prices are making CDR's a viable alternative to stamped CD's, even in large quantities.
