NeoN068 said:No cd can sound better then another cd. They are all pure digital, not analog. An audio cd is the same as a data cd, there is no difference...
80minute cd = 700mb of data
74minute cd = 650mb of data
Then why do some CD companies label their CD-R's as audio CD-R's?
UnseenMenace said:The "music" blanks are more expensive than the "data" blanks because a portion of the price goes to the music industry. The specifics vary from country to country. In the USA, the money goes to the RIAA, which distributes it to artists who have navigated through a complicated application process.

Probably burnt through 40 of them with my Digital Research Ide burner at 32X (For some reason Nero lets me burn these at 32X but not 40X. It lets me burn my more expensive 12X cds at 24X but no higher. Go figure. Oh, I've not burnt a single bad one. And I do all kinds of sick ****... Downloading or viruscanning while im burning. Real stupid ****. Maybe I just got a REALLY lucky burner and pack of CD's or maybe my lord and master Satan has blessed me with super Cdburning powers. Fear my Burneyness!
Edit... oh and all my copys are on the fly, and I never turn data verify or any of those options on. I do a purely minimalistic, as fast as it will go burn.
You may think that all your data has burned without errors, but when you eventually go back to copy some stuff off you'll find it's corrupted. Feel free not to listen to anyone else, but cheap-o CDRs are very unreliable. When your data counts you don't rely on a cheap-o (and if it doesn't matter to you, why bother burning it at all?).
