"Audio" CD-R media

What is the difference between a conventional CD-R and the (substantially more expensive) so-called "audio" CD-Rs? Is there any reason to use these (to store music) as opposed to conventional CD-Rs?

The audio disks I believe are required for the stand alone type home recorders, computer recorders do not require these and you'll gain nothing using them (other than a lighter wallet).

I concur...I've been using "data" cd-r's to make audio cds for a long time. Look for the $5 (after mail-in rebate) 50-packs from Best Buy. Cheap as hell, but they work just fine for me.

It's simply a marketing gimmick!

Buy cheaper date cd's.
