All existing discs, depending on the formats, can be divided into two categories – CD and DVD. These formats have a fundamental difference in the amount of information that fits on each of the disks. Also, discs differ in the type of device on which these discs can be recorded.
The volume of the CD is 700 megabytes (700 Mb), and the DVD holds 4.7 gigabytes (4.7 Gb). It is quite obvious that DVD have a volume that is almost 7 times the volume of cd. There are also CDs with a capacity of 800 Mb, and DVDs with a capacity of 8.5 Gb — these models are called dual-layer (but not to be confused with double-sided discs).
It should be noted that there are also mini-disks: the volume of mini-CDs is 210 Mb. Disks are a thing that in the modern world can be considered a basic necessity, because used by literally everyone. Everyone who somehow interacts with digital information (that is, almost 100% of the population) buys a CD in one way or another.
The collection of karaoke discs is the pride of a keen karaoke player. It is discs that breathe life into karaoke equipment and give amateur vocalists the opportunity to enjoy singing. Unfortunately, it happens that a completely new, just purchased disc disappoints its owner in terms of the content or sound of the presented compositions.
Several thousand karaoke tracks can be recorded on a regular CD. But in this case, the quality of such karaoke tracks will be minimal. In addition, karaoke machines will definitely appear, which, even with appropriate programs, will not be able to read such unreasonably dense information. Players and discs even under the same brand may have compatibility problems, so before buying a «thousandth» disc, you should make sure in advance that it will retain its functionality on your device.
CDs can be used in karaoke machines, but not in all. To effectively use discs of this format, you will need a reader program that reads them without any problems. As a rule, most modern karaoke equipment is equipped with all the necessary programs, so this technique plays CDs without any problems.
This means that we can consider the answer to the question of whether it is possible to use ordinary CDs on a karaoke machine only in relation to a particular model of a karaoke machine. The more modern a karaoke machine is, the more likely it is to read and play discs of this format without problems.
