Ok, I’m completely new to this site and really I’ve never used forums before period, so if there’s other sites any of you think I’d have better luck getting some of these questions answered and want to point me that way, that would be appreciated. I have a bunch of crazy questions that giving context to would be too longwinded, so I’m just gonna vomit them into a list and if anyone can give any insight on any of them I would appreciate it. A lot of these probably barely make sense, but I’m a complete tech noob so I apologize in advance. So:
Does putting a CD (music/digital audio) into a computer and playing and ripping it install any data from the computer itself onto the CD, and if so would that data picked up from the computer spread to another device the CD is put into? And what about other forms of CDs or DVDs?
And what about video games, does playing and installing a game on a console install any data from that console onto that game disc?
Does putting a USB into a computer and playing files from and putting certain files on that USB install any other data from that computer onto the USB and spread it to any other device the USB or its files are put onto?
If you install game files from a game console onto an external hard drive, would that hard drive get traces of any data, like past web browser activity installed onto the hard drive in any way?
Does having accounts (google, social media, etc.) on a computer or smartphone and then putting them on another device link in any way other data from the first device onto the second device? So let’s say someone searched something “bad” on a google account while meanwhile another logged off google account existed on that same device. If the google account that searched the bad thing is maybe even deleted but someone is using said other google account on a different device, could that bad data be linked to that account on a different device? And what if someone is even using the account that searched the bad thing but on a different device, does that bad data stay on only the device that searched for it, or does it get linked somehow to any other device the account gets logged into on? (If any of that makes sense to anyone, I apologize for the clumsy language)
Thanks again if anyone can even give some insight into any of my bizarre questions.
