CD-R vs. CD-RW

I just got a message from a new CD burning program I got (NTI CD-maker) and it told me that CD-RWs (what I've been using) can't be played in some car or home stereos. Would the type of CD make a difference as to whether or not I'm able to play them in the car? They play in my XBOX just fine, but no go in any of the cars.

Once you burn on a CD-R, it can't be changed. CD-RWs are rewritable. That means you can burn a CD, then if you decide you don't want any of that stuff anymore you can reburn it with new stuff. MOST car CD players, if not all stock cd players will NOT play CD-RWs. If you have a nice aftermarket unit it will probably play them.

CD-RWs are also more expensive....you coulda been saving money. Buy CD-Rs.

I use cd-rw's for temporary storage, for instance, making mp3 cd's for the car. I bought a 10 pack, and just reuse them whenever I feel the urge to change the music.

Other than that, I agree, use cd-r.
