    Default Is there a way to use what I have learned about quality

    This may be a bit off subject, but having had so much luck using high quality media, is there a way to convert this to regular cd's? I was looking around cdfreaks but did not really find much in the way of checking out quality on regular cds. I know from looking around the brick and mortar stores here it is even harder to find MIJ cd's than DVD's and really the only luck I have had have been some music only Maxells, priced higher than the rest. Here's another question how is a music only cd different from a data/music cd, or is there really a difference? Using Cd-DVD speed i find these are TY's and it is nice they even Have MIJ stamped on the disc.

    Smile Hello dmanshead

    An audio CD-R is formatted to play back an audio recording in a Music CD player and also computer drives. They are close to the CDs you buy at the music stores. Data CD-Rĺs contain data files and do not play in some music CD players. You can burn audio files on to a data cd, but then they will read back as data files and not as a music files.

    Hello,
    To make that more clear a audio cd you would use a .WAV file to burn and audio cd to listen to on a cd player.

    .MP3 you would burn as data cd that will only play on a computer or mp3 player. mp3's are a smaller file and you can put a lot more on a cd but you need a mp3 player to listen to them or use your computer.

    Verbatim makes good quality cd's

    You find them every where.

    a2j3 and pa,
    that's not what dman is talking about, "music only" is just a term, a liscensing fee is paid to the riaa or somebody, since you pay a premium for them you may get better quality. Recently I started using cdpseed to identify mid and scan some burns, I was having some trouble with data extraction in a digitizing karaoke operation. My tdk's were screwing up, play fine but blocky
    video after extraction, cmcmags, got some mit sony's, they did fine.

    Well here is what i found. i think media quality equates very similarly to cd's as well as dvd's. I drive an old truck which isn't very hard to get into even when it's locked, so i went to wally world and bought a cheap cd player. I don't want 10-20 of my discs out there in it so i made some backups of my cd's to take along for the ride. the ones with the Maxell from TY play perfectly where as the memorex and imation cds tend to play spotty. Running cd-dvd speeed tests on them they scan fine but in the cheap player they don't do so well, so I guess I answered my own question that Quality Media is the best way to go, now to just find more TY media wether it is "audio" or "data" is the goal. so if it is labeled audio, can i still put data on it for my computers?

    I have burned many MP3's to plain old blank cd-r's using MMJB which converts them to regular CD audio format and they play fine in any CD player. Depending upon the bitrate and length of the song of the MP3 get anywhere from 18 to about 22 on a blank cd. Like Chewy said the ones labeled Audio CD's cost more and they kick back to the music industry and cost anywhere from $.70 to $2.30 each depending where you buy them. I think they were designed for standalone CD-recorders like those here

    One of my Apex standalone players don't like 'em on that Staples media (MBI) if I burn 'em too fast. It's the stock FW also and only allows up to 8X max on them I usually stay at 6 with this FW and MID for now
