I'm going to sound like a dick here :(

My mate told me how to make my own CDs today :)

But can I tape over them later on, if I decide I don't like them anymore? :unsure:

It all just depends on the type of blank CD disks you have bought. If you go buy the ones labelled CD-rw then you can tape over them so to speak. But if you buy CD-r blank disks you can only copy to them once only.

It says 52x compatible CD-recordable

Mr. DATA 80min/700MB

CD-R

So is it like when you tape something on a video and take the tab off?

No.

When you take the tab off a video you can always stick sellotape over it again if you change your mind.

So far as I can gather, once written a CD-R cannot be used again.

Exactly as Skyline said there, once you copy information onto a CD-r, your stuck with it. If you want to copy more information you have to use another CD.

However if you buy CD-rw you can reuse the CD as many times as you want.

I've heard CD-RW's are not so good for music. According to a wee wifey in PC world anyway, they can be incompatible with some CD players and the quality isn't as good. So I've always used CDRs.

Anyone know if that's true?

They're cheap as chips anyway Pompey, ya tight fisted tinker :P;)

Quality is fine, but they don't work with most CD players, especially in cars.

CD - Rs are a lot cheaper as I think.

CD - RWs do have an 'expiry date' Carlos but after about 1000 writes so plenty of re editing can be done.

Correct Ruggy. I have an mp3 player in my car and for months I thought I was decoding the discs wrongly for the stereo as it kept coming up toc error. Turns out the problem was the b*****ding cd-rw's. Was ready to take the stereo back and everything at one point.

Pompey you mink.
