CD is a red-book digital audio storage standard and VHS is an analog video storage standard. CDs record data digitaly on a disk read with a lazer, whereas VHS tapes are analog and are read with an electromagnetic pickup.

Not really. VCR stands for 'video cassette recorder' and VHS is type of videocassette tape that can be played in a VCR.

CDs are for music while DVDs are for movies

VHS (Video Home System) uses magnetic tape in a cassette. DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) uses discs which are read by a laser light.

Some CDs have music, some have games, and some have pictures.

Super VHS was an 'improved' version of VHS. The picture was much better. But, while you could play a VHS on a Super machine, you could NOT play a Super tape on a regular VHS machine. It never matched the mainstream success of regular VHS. ************ Most standard VHS VCR's made since 1995 can *play* S-VHS tapes but the resolution is reduced to that of standard VHS. It's called SQPB for Super-VHS Quasi-Playback. S-VHS VCRs have the S-VHS logo and a mini DIN 4 video output port and one for input. AFAIK all S-VHS VCRs also support linear stereo and Hi-Fi stereo recording and playback. Playing a standard VHS tape on an S-VHS VCR, using the S-Video out, will get you the best possible playback quality from the standard tape, but it will still be less than S-VHS.

Compared to what? The only real advantage that VHS tape had as compared to something like CDs or DVDs was length. You could buy tapes that would run for 10 hours without being changed. But today, you would be hard pressed to buy even a standard-length (6-hour) VHS tape.

There are some distinctive differences between a blu ray drive and a cd drive although they are both examples of optical media. I think a blu ray drive can read cds and dvds as well as blu ray cds while a cd drive only reads cds.

A CD drive just reads CDs. A CD-R drive can read CDs and write once to blank CD-Rs. A CD-RW drive can do all of the above, and can use ReWritable CDs that can be formatted or rewritten.

A portable cd player will only play cds. A portable dvd player will play dvds, as well as cds. A dvd player is mostly different in that it will play movies.

Same reason CDs were invented. They last A LOT longer, can jump to any scene, and they never degrade in quality as VHS tapes degrade in quality over time.

DVD came after VHS.

The S-VHS input location will vary depending on the device. The term S-VHS stands for super VHS because it is an improved version of the typical VHS system.

VHS format stores video as an analog signal so any standard VHS tape can store exactly 0GB of digital data.

CDs, DVDs and BluRay discs all work in similar ways. The primary difference is the data density on each disc. CD is the lowest density. A DVD can store several times the amount of data on the same surface area and BluRay will store several time the amount of a DVD.

Combo drive burns the CDs and play DVDs while the super drive can burn the DVDs along with running it as well.

Audio CDs are cdr disks that have audio tracks transferred onto them. If you use cdrw disks they may not work on your audio equipment

If the VHS portion of a VHS/DVD unit breaks the DVD portion will still work. It should not be much of an issue depending on how often the VHS is used.

A negotiable CD is a transferable CD. This means unlike traditional non-negotiable CDs, it can be sold in the secondary markets to other investors. The investment amount on negotiable CDs is also substantially larger than non-negotiable CDs. It is mainly targeted at institutional investors and companies.
