Just checked newegg in the US. If you look for "ODD" here, you get a
very odd response.

For example,

Fairly Odd Parents By Nickelodeon Bubble Bath 7 Oz
Model #: 692237016543

shows up fairly high. Not an actual optican disk drive in sight, but
there are DVD's and "ODD bay"s there.

Searching for "optical disk drive" works. But then I never see
anything called "ODD" anywhere. I did find it in the "Technical
Specifications" for one of the drives, though.

Anyway, in the US it is definitely not a common term for normal people.
