What is the difference between a CD and a CD-R


A CD is a replicated disc, made from scratch with the content created from a glass master. This will always have a pure silver surface. This is the process that gives high quality consistent CDs, which all major worldwide record labels use. This is the professional process used for all Veteran CDs.


A CD-R is a blank disc that has the content burnt onto the surface. It is known as duplication and is a good way to  transfer data including audio tracks. Its main restriction is that it can be unstable and the data on the surface can be lost through mistreatment and environmental conditions.


So a CD-R will give you the material you want but back it up straight away and don't expect it to play on your CD player for ever.
