Summary
  • Many users have been frustrated in their first attempts to use CD-ROMs with their PCs. Twelve million PC users are expected to have CD-ROM drives by the end of 1994, and sales of disks are expected to rise to $3.7 billion. However, many novice users have been discouraged by poor quality software, incompatible software, and software that requires large amounts of free memory to run well. One analyst estimates that purchasers are dismayed by the quality of CD-ROM software 50 percent of the time. Hardware difficulties include the surprisingly slow speed of many players and the complexity of installing multimedia add-on kits to microcomputers not designed with multimedia in mind. Macintosh users report fewer problems with software compatibility and hardware installation.
