Types of recordable CD and DVD media If your computer has an internal or external recordable optical drive supported by Apple, you can "burn" (record) your favorite music, applications, documents, digital photos and video, and other digital files to recordable CD and DVD discs. You can create your own music CDs and play them on a standard audio player, or create DVDs with movies and slideshows and play them on a DVD player. There are several types of recordable CD and DVD media: DVD-R discs hold about 4.7 GB of information. You can burn files on a DVD-R disc using the Apple SuperDrive. DVD-R discs are not reusable; you can burn files on them only once. DVD-RW (DVD-Rewritable) discs hold about 4.7 GB of information on each side. If you have an Apple SuperDrive, you can read information on these discs, but you can't burn files on them using Mac OS X. DVD-RW discs are reusable: you can burn files on them, erase them, and then burn again (if you have an application that is compatible). CD-RW (CD-Rewritable) discs come in normal and high-speed formats. You can burn files on CD-RW discs using the Combo drive (or another supported CD burner). CD-RW discs are reusable: you can burn files on them, erase them, and then burn again. CD-R (CD-Recordable) discs come in two types. One holds 74 minutes of audio, or about 650 MB of information. The other holds 80 minutes of audio, or about 700 MB of information. You can burn CD-R discs using the Combo drive (or another supported CD burner). For recording audio CDs, it is best to use CD-R discs because most standard audio CD players cannot read CD-RW discs. For longer-term storage and reliability, use CD-R discs. You can't burn anything on a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM disc.

There is no difference - they both mean DVD recordable
A CD Drive reads CDs.A CD-R drive writes to CD-R discs. Rewrite not possible.A CD-RW drive writes to CD-RW discs. Rewrite capable.CD drive can only read a CD and not write to it, the drive is called a CD-ROM drive. CD-R is a recordable drive, it will burn to CD-R discs, which can only be burned to one time.CD-RW drives support CD-R and CD-RW, which is the ability to burn to CD-RW discs, which can be burned to, and erased, hundreds of times.
Only read, recordable, read and write
A normal CD can have information recorded onto it once only. A CD Recordable can have information added to it after the original recording has been made
There are only one type of CD, which is CD-R, there is not CD+R.........Now if you are talking about DVD, then there is not different.
Cd-r and Cd+r are really about the same. It stands for Compact Disk-Recordable. The only major difference between the two is that Cd-r is more universal than Cd+r, so it can be played in more devices.
Ativa CD-r's hold 700 megabytes or 80 minutes of uncompressed Audio.
Yes. DVD-RW drives can write to both DVD-R (DVD Recordable) and DVD-RW (DVD Rewritable) discs.
The difference between a DVD-R and a DVD-RW is:DVD-R: These are recordable DVDs that you can record from VHS tapes, computer as data discs, etc. However, once you record something on it, it remains like that (in other words, you can't delete what's on the disc), you can't re-record on this type of disc.DVD-RW: It's the same as DVD-R except you can erase what's on the disc and record it again. It's as many times s you want.Note: DVD-R are much less expensive to get than DVD-RW.
Compact Disk Recordable
Inscriptible is a French word for recordable.
CD-R is a CD-Recordable and a CD-RW is a CD rewriteable.
The difference is related to how they store the data. To really learn the differences you'll need a degree in computer sciences. Some DVD players may accept DVD+R but not the DVD-R and vice-versa. But computers can accept them both.
It's possible to burn only once on CD-R, CD-RW supports several burnings. CD-R = Compact Disc Recordable CD-RW = Compact Disc Re Writeable
It stands for Recordable Compact-Disk.
If you look on the tray of your CD drive, it will tell you what types of discs it is compatible with. If you want to burn a CD, look for it to say "CD-R/CD+RW" or something similar. The R and the RW stand for Recordable (one-time write) and Re-Writable.
The only difference is the hyphen.
See answer for similar question, "What is the difference between TM and R in the circle?"
Music can be burnt onto a CD-R (Compact Disc-Recordable) blank disc these can be played in a CD player. CD-RW discs can also be used but some CD players struggle to play them. A blank DVD (DVD-R) can be used to play music on a DVD player.CD-R discs cost a few pennies/cents each and usually come in packs of 25 - 50.
A CD is a read only disk. CD-R is a recordable disk meaning writeable but only once up to the capacity. CD-RW- allows you to rewrite over old data with new data, many times.
The difference is.... I DON;r know!
