CD-R vs. CD-RW

  • Posted: 04 July 2001 03:13 PM

    I’m a little confused. I think.

    I know that CD-R is CD Read only and CD-RW s CD read-write. That means that I can reuse a CD-RW but not a CD-R, right?

    So if I want to burn a compact disc from iTunes to use in my car, my best bet is a CD-R, is that right?

    Thanks.

    For audio CDs, I definitely recommend CD-Rs.

    If you have your heart set on making a CD of songs to use for a short time and then making a new mix on the same CD, there are some special CD players that can read CD-RW discs.  Also, there are some that can even read data CDs with MP3 files on them.

    However, these players will probably cost enough that you might be better off buying a true portable MP3 player like a Rio.
