Writing on the fly

On the fly

Definition:

In computer terms, writing on the fly refers to the process of copying information from one media type directly to another without an intermediate step. An example of such a process is when a copy of a CD (compact disk) is made directly from one CD-ROM drive to another CD-ROM drive in the same computer without first saving an image of the source CD to the hard drive. This option is usually found in CD or DVD burning software.
