Default Re: What makes a CD spin?

Yes. The motor spins the CD, and the spinning device is the metal rod onto the welded CD spinner. The plastic thing on to is to hold the CD, because if it doesn't hold it, it will fly around.

Yeah, that's the thing I'm talking of.

Also, note that in slim drives, the ones in the laptops, they use smaller motors, so they fit in, but the speeds are reduced. They all run at 24X.

It's spun by special anti-gravity projectors that magically hover the disc and spin it to super fast speeds.
