Default Re: CD disc

CD-R (Compact Disc-Recordable) is Write Once Read Many.
CD-RW can be re-written

DVD-R Write Once Read Many, has broader compatibility than +R
DVD+R Write Once Read Many, less compatibility than -R

DVD-RW Rewritable
DVD+RW Rewritable

CD+G is a specialized disc used for things like Karaoke CD's

I don't know anything about CD+R.

read here, for more than you ever wanted to know :

the only really important thing, before buying media, is to know what your CD/DVD Player/Burner is/are capable of writing to or reading

it seems that older players are the ones that are limited with ref to types of media - I believe most new(er) ones burn/play most all media

if you're in the market for new hardware, get one that has the capability to "use" all formats - there will be a list - usually on the outside of the box - that will show what formats the unit is compatible with - or, for existing Players/Burners, your owner's manual will list the formats

I burn DVDs in both +R and -R formats but all my equipment can read both

I use an RW format ONLY when I know I'll be re-writing or adding-to what I've got on the DVD/CD (for instance, a DVD upon which I keep adding digital pictures, as I take them)

RWs are more expensive than +/-Rs
