Stick to For Music Only (or something like that) labeled blank CDs...
Jim, the only difference between regular CD-Rs and Music CD-Rs is that
the Music CD-Rs have code on them to allow an audio-system CD recorder
(such as the one I have) to copy onto them. The audio-system CD recorder will
not accept a plain CD-R.
Other than that, the two types of disc are the same, and of the same
recording quality. If you are using a computer to make the CD-R, the
quality will be the same regardless of which type CD-R you use.
The extra money you pay for Music CD-Rs goes to RIAA, so they can
capture every last penny of copyright revenue.
Here's what Wikipedia says:
"Initially in the _United States_
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States) , there was a market separation between "music" CD-Rs and "data"
CD-Rs, the former being several times more expensive than the latter due to
industry _copyright_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright) arrangements with
the _RIAA_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RIAA) .__
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CD-R#cite_note-1) Physically, there is no difference between the
discs save for the Disc Application Flag that identifies their type:
standalone audio recorders will only accept "music" CD-Rs to enforce the RIAA
arrangement, while computer CD-R drives can use either type of media to burn
either type of content.__ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CD-R#cite_note-2) "
Nowadays, a Music CD-R costs about 15% more than a plain CD-R.
