In Romanian there is a difference between CD-ROM and CD. Most of the time the drive is called CD-ROM while CD is the media itseft. Is it justified to make an explicit difference between the media and the drive in this manner?

It's an interesting question. We tend not to differentiate the different types of _CDs_ unless that is pertinent, so we say «đĩa CD» (CD disk), and the drive is «ổ CD» (CD drive). Are we sure that people will only be installing Debian, for example, from a stamped CD-ROM?
