    CD-R you write once, CD-RW you can re-write several times.

    CD-R disc's are those golden disc's which can be written to only once. When properly written, it can be read by so to say every CD-ROM drives.

    CD-RW use a special disc which enable you to delete and rewrite. However, those disc's are usually only readable on a handfull of CD-RW drives and only a few CD-ROM drives.

    I have a HP CD-Writer Plus 8100i...I love it. It burns CD-R at 4x speed, CD-RW at 2x speed, and reads CDs at 24x speed. I bought it 4 months ago for $385.

    The first burner I tried was a cheap Sony CD-R. It only burnt at 2x and I had nothing but trouble with it. So if you can spend up to $400, I'd say get the HP. You get what you pay for.
