If someone has already said this, please forgive me.
Recording audio
CD-RW will play on only multiple use CDROMs such as a DVD or
CD-RW drive.
CD-R will play in an audio player or multiple use CD drive.

If you want to record music on a CD-R you can do that, if
you don't close or finish the CD-R then you can go back in
and add more to it later.  Once you close or finish the CD-R
you cannot write anymore to it again.

If you want to rewrite to a CD-RW then you must play it in
the CD-RW drive or DVD drive to hear it.  This would allow
you to record, erase, re-record, etc.  Still won't play on
the stereo or any mini-player, but will work.
