Why Are External CD Drives Necessary?
Modern technology has advanced in leaps and bounds in recent years. Where CD drives used to come standard on new PCs, we are seeing less need for them over time. Most software downloads can be performed with a simple online purchase and click to download.
Since so many of us are beginning to value portability and convenience over multiple features, CD drives are being left out to reduce bulk and make laptops even more portable. Streaming services have even made it unnecessary to use CDs and DVDs in all instances for entertainment, and cloud storage makes it easy to save and back up important files.
Unfortunately, these efforts at added convenience pose inconveniences to many. Users are sometimes finding themselves needing to use a CD and having no way to do it.
