There is a big difference between a hard drive and a cd reader - if a cd player gets shaken it will skip and lose track and many have memory to compensate. It is also read by light which is a much greater distance from the disc that the reading heads in hard drive. There must be a way round this problem as many militiry vehicles use hard drive computers, etc.
Maybe they are set in gymbals like the old compasses on board ships
