Blu-ray Burning Bug Discovered in Microsoft Windows 7 - http://blog.cdrom2go.com/2011...
The latest and greatest operating system from Microsoft – Windows 7 – has been on the market for almost two years now. Since it first went on sale in October of 2009, Windows 7 has broken numerous sales records for Microsoft products and for the software industry as a whole. Now, a new issue has been discovered with Windows 7 that is causing a lot of frustration for users. Like Windows Vista and Windows XP, Microsoft’s Windows 7 comes with a built-in utility for recording optical discs. With XP, users could natively burn files to blank CD-R and DVD-R discs.

What’s the Difference Between Compact Discs and MiniDiscs? - http://blog.cdrom2go.com/2011...
With regards to portable players, MiniDiscs used a large “read-ahead” buffer memory to prevent skips and interruptions during playback. It took several years for portable CD players to gain this feature, which gave MiniDiscs a huge advantage for playing music on road trips, while bicycling, and during other activities. I hope this article has been useful in illustrating some of the key differences between the MiniDisc format and between Compact Discs. There are many more fine technical differences and details, but those could easily fill another article or two!
