but what is the name of the cd I got told that there is certain names for them and certain ones you use for songs and movies and pictures is that correct?
Maybe I missed something here, but Elden is talking about DVDs and you asked about CDs.
There are Data CD-Rs that are designed for saving computer data; you don't want those for recording music. A good ALL PURPOSE CD-R (I usually buy Fuji) will work with virtually anything. Don't buy CD-RW, which can be erased and used over, unless you are sure the players you are going to use it on accepts RW discs. (some older and/or cheaper players don't)
thank you for your info luckly now I know how to burn songs to dvds my brother had to help me though.
