The format was originally developed to store and play only sound recordings (CD-DA) but was later adapted for storage of data (CD-ROM). Several other formats were further derived from these, including write-once audio and data storage (CD-R), rewritable media (CD-RW), Video Compact Disc (VCD), Super Video Compact Disc (SVCD), Photo CD, PictureCD, CD-i, and Enhanced Music CD. The first commercially available audio CD player, the Sony CDP-101, was released October 1982 in Japan.

CD-ROM Compact Disc-Read-Only Memory

A CD-ROM (/ˌsiːdiːˈrɒm/, compact disc read-only memory) is a pre-pressed optical compact disc that contains data. Computers can read—but not write to or erase—CD-ROMs, i.e. it is a type of read-only memory.

CD-RW Compact Disc-Rewritable

CD-RW (Compact Disc-ReWritable) is a digital optical disc storage format introduced in 1997. A CD-RW compact disc (CD-RWs) can be written, read, erased, and re-written.

CDFS Compact Disc File System

The Compact Disc File System (CDFS) is a file system for read-only and write-once CD-ROMs developed by Simson Garfinkel and J. Spencer Love at the MIT Media Lab between 1985 and 1986.[1] The file system provided for the creation, modification, renaming and deletion of files and directories on a write-once media. The file system was developed with a write-once CD-ROM simulator and was used to master one of the first CD-ROMs in 1986. CDFS was never sold, but its source code was published on the Internet and the CD-ROMs were distributed to Media Lab sponsors. The file system is the basis of WOFS (Write-once File System),[2] sold by N/Hance systems in 1989.

CERT Computer Emergency Response Team

A Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) is an expert group that handles computer security incidents. Alternative names for such groups include Computer Emergency Readiness Team and Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT).
