Is there a preferred way of writing CD-Rom for book publishing? cd-rom? CD-Rom or CD-ROM? Any ideas?
Thank you.

The Oxford Dictionary refer to a CD-ROM (see click here ), but I would also check with your publisher, as they often have in-house guidelines

Since it is an acronym, the standard way to write acronyms is in capital letters.

Would agree with both of the above.

Manuals and specs for the company I work for refer to CD-ROM , DVD- ROM

As we all seem to be in agreement, it looks like CD-ROM. Many thanks for your help.

the letters stand for CompactDisk - ReadOnlyMemory, and should be typed as CD-ROM
