It's a lot of messing around with CD's/DVD's, you end up with piles of the things everywhere. A USB stick is just so simple. I imagine CD's and DVD's will disappear altogether one day in the not so distant future, a bit like cassette tapes.
They've been saying that about CDs/DVDs for a decade or more and it hasn't happened yet. As far as the piles go, there are ways to more efficiently store them. I have cases that are 7" x 10" x 12" that can store up to 300 CDs/DVDs in each one. I have all my CDs ripped and the album art scanned into my computer. For now, the only reason I'm keeping the case and a half worth of CDs I have is to prove ownership should I ever need to and to serve as another layer of backup. I'm eventually going to destroy them. Although technically illegal (for now; very few people have been brought against people ripping movies, etc. and courts have been finding in favor of them as long they are only for personal use, orphans, etc.), I'm eventually going to rip all my movies as well. It would be way too expensive to buy downloads to replace the movies I already own, not to mention not all movies are available as downloads (the same went for my music). Believe me, for me, an internal ODD is far more convenient and practical. And, as long as the content of CDs and DVDs are better quality than downloads, they will continue to be the most practical source of my content.

Not all radio stations play what I want when I want. Darned few, in fact. I listen to CDs in my vehicle far more often than I do the one radio station in my area that barely comes close to being to my liking. YouTube videos have lower music quality, the selection is limited, and burns through far too much bandwidth.

As far as OSes and programs go, true, a USB stick is more practical but they are only a tiny percentage of the content one can get from CDs and DVDs.
Sounds like you have a pretty old school stereo in your car Lady F, nowadays you can just whack like 5000 songs on your phone and bluetooth it or even just put a USB in. Here's an example, it doesn't even have a cd player and it's not very expensive either - Halfords | Alpine UTE-72BT Drive-less Head Unit with Bluetooth and iPod

I must admit that my cable management these days is a bit lackadaisical. I've found that once you add a second card and more than four hard drives (Requiring the extra PCI-E and sata power cables) it all goes to pooh.

Plus my Silverstone Strider PCI-E cables have both the 8 pin and 6 pin in a pigtail config and you cant use the pigtail to power one card. You have to use a second cable which leaves the pigtail just "sitting there" making a mess

I know what you mean about that pigtail. My new Corsair AX760 has the same thing. I was working on removing it earlier today when I broke my pin removal tool (mutter, mutter, mumble, mumble).
