WORM

Another acronym. This one stands for Write Once, Read Many, and is a short name for CD recordable drives and media. The name is fairly self explanatory, you may write only once to this type of media, but read from it many, many times. More recently the abbreviation CD-R (CD Recordable) has been used in place of the WORM acronym, presumably to make the technology more easily understood, and thus marketable, to the masses.
