If the OP has a stand alone CD recorder as I do, one must use the CD's labeled for use with music. CD-R's can be recorded once and CD-RW are erasable and can be recorded again many times.
I always use Maxell as Memorex does not seem compatible with my Pioneer recorder. I believe I once used a Sony successfully for a friend.
I have never used a Music CD-RW and they are hard to find. The advantage would be that if one to make a mistake while recording, that track can be erased and recorded again. One could even get a CD just perfect and then copy the CD-RW over to a CD-R using a second CD player to dub from. If I make a mistake, I just copy over the songs that were correct, do not copy the song with a mistake and throw the original out.
