packet writing

One of three CD recording methods. The other two are track-at-once and disc-at-once, but packet writing allows smaller blocks of data to be written. Fixed-length packets are commonly used with CD-RWs to make them perform similar to a hard disk and allow small files to be deleted. Variable-length packets are used to save space and are more suitable for recording CD-Rs. See UDF and packet writing software.
