CD-RW usually have a limited life span (just few years). Considering that flash drives are cheap, there are zero reasons to use them. I wouldn't touch "music only" disks. If you want to keep your records for more than few years, use only very high quality CD-Rs designed for archival purposes like these: http://www.mam-a.com/24kt_gold.

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.

CD-R's are able to be read by every CD player I have ever owned, including ld models from the 80's. Maybe you just don't know how to burn them.

Many older players do have issues with CD-RW's though, due to the lower reflectivity.

Stand alone CD recorder is as useless at tape deck today. If one need to make records, he can use computer with 10x better results. If you still want stand-alone box by some weird reason, get professional hard disk recorder. Then physical media (CD, DVD etc) can still be created and burned on computer in comfort of your office.

And the last thing - many consumer recorders could be forced to accept regular media via firmware or configuration hack.

Not so in my experience. I have a TDK CD-RW that I have used for over 10 years on my Pioneer 509 deck, without any issues.

As for the OP's question, the last time I bought discs, I went with TDK and got them at J&R Music World online. I have not looked recently to see if they still carry them. I bought enough at that time that I will likely never need to buy any more.

I beg to differ on the issue of stand alone CD recorders or at least the one I have. My Yamaha has a built in hard drive that I copy cd's to and book mark the tracks I want to record on to a CDR. The disc's I turn out exactly the same as the original recording with the exception of elimination of tracks I don't want. Before the Yamaha I had a 5 disc Sony CD recorder that did a fine job and before that a Phillips that recorded well but only held up for 3 years of moderate usage.

I have the Yamaha CDR-HD1500 myself, and I love it for storing and playing all my music. As far as burning CD's, the computer is far easier, much more versatile, and I don't need expensive music CD-R's. A computer can burn DVD's as well. Really no contest at all.
