Is a blank music CD-R different from a blank Data CD-R?

It depends: For computer CD-Recorder drives: No. They are exactly the same. However, when you burn the CD you can choose to burn it as a music CD or as a data CD. For stand alone CD-Recorders: Yes. Stand alone CD-Recorders will only record on a CD, that has its Digital Audio Music format. Stand alone CD-Recorders are very picky about which CDs you use. Stand alone CD-Recorders will not record on a data CD-R. A blank Music CD-R is designed for stand alone CD-Recorders. A blank data CD-R is more designed for computer CD-Recorders. However a computer CD-Recorder can either record on a Music CD-R or a Data CD-R.
