No, you can write to a CD-R but not format, once it has been written to you cannot erase the data off of it, you can still write to it if you leave the disc as an open-session. A CD-RW however can be formatted and reused.

Most floppy disks will come pre-formatted. All floppy disks need to be formatted to be usable.

Because cdr discs only have MBs of space and DVD discs are in GBs

Yes long as it gets formatted correctly.

cdr can be formatted into an audio CD, data CD or video CD... its the format you choose that determines what you can put onto it. cdr can take almost anything. note, if you just drag mp3 files onto your cdr and burn, it does not make it an audio CD, but data.
