CD-ROM server

A CD-ROM reader designed for network use. It can be configured as a tower or jukebox. Towers contain several drives, and each drive holds one CD-ROM. Jukeboxes hold from a couple dozen to hundreds of discs, but have only a small number of drives. A robotic mechanism moves the discs to the drives as required. See CD-ROM changer.
