a drive that reads a compact disc and that is connected to an audio system
Normally the CD player installed on all modern PCs, but includes optional CD writer drives.
The CD drive is identical to the ones that are used to play music compact disks. The CD drive is used to load large programs on to the computer's hard drive. On a desktop computer the CD drive is housed in the tower or box that comes with the monitor. In a laptop it will be found on the front or sides of the computer. An open/close button will be next to the drive.
