    First I got my DSL, now I just placed order for a 4x4x24x CDRW Richoh

    The most exciting day of my life!
    I also ordered 4 CDRW media and 10CDR media
    so my question is that CDR mean only write once and it is permanent?
    Can't wait to get my CDRW cdrom, after all these time sheesh I am slow to catch up to the crowd.

    my question is that CDR mean only write once and it is permanent?
    You are correct. In fact, I almost always use the term "write-once" when referring to media usually called "CD-R" (and "erasable" for what is often called "CD-RW"), because it avoids confusion (when you say CDRW, do you mean the recorder, or the erasable discs?).

    My son still uses the Ricoh 4x4 I bought a few years ago. It's a little finicky about media, but it's burned several hundred discs (I'm listening to one it burned right now) and is still working as well as it ever did.

    And don't be too concerned about the crowd

    Keep in mind also that CD-Rs are compatible with most existing CD players and CD-ROM drives. CD-RWs are more useful because of their erasability, but they don't work in most CD players and CD-ROM drives. Most modern CD-ROM drives and especially DVD drives can play them, but don't expect to burn a music compilation onto a CD-RW and expect to play it in your car.

    CDR is probably cheaper than floppy disks these days. Fry's sells 80 minutes CDR with case for 29 cents each.

    How much did the CD-RW cost? 4x sounds awfully outdated and slow to me.

    I just replaced my old HP 4X burner with a Yamaha 16X which costed me around 300 USD.

    You should be able to get at least a 8X or 12X burner for just a tiny bit more expensive than your 4X.

    I found out too late that one CDRW wont do me much good, need at least 2 for 2 computer
    because CDRW media cannot be read by normal cdrom kind of sucks.

    Depends how old the CDROM is. CDRWs can easily be read by all the drives of today. I believe there was a program that comes with Adaptec software that installs something on your machine to enable CDROMs to read it (multiread was it?) I don't remember much of this recording stuff ever since I gave the burner back to my brother a few months ago.

    take forever you burn them but it much faster for a cdrom to read it so it a good tradeoff.
