I'm new to burning CD's and wanted a little advice. What type of CD is better for this; CD-R or CD-RW, and what brand or specifcations are better? After you burn some songs to a CD is it possible to go back to that CD at a later time and add more songs to it?

CD-RW are Re-writable discs. Meaning, you can put more or take off songs from the CD after you have already burned onto it. You cannot rewrite to a regular CD-R or CD+R disc.

I burned some songs onto a CD-RW disc, but was unable to add songs to it later. When I tried to add songs in the Roxio program, it said that the disc was not blank and asked if I wanted to erase disk. Is there anyway to add songs, without erasing the contents of disc? The disc I have is 4X, 700 MB, 80 min; are these appropriate specs?

oohh. No, I don't think you can sorry. I don't use CD-RW/+RW discs that much, so maybe there is some sort of way to do that. From what I know though, you can't.

So, do you mainly use CD-R discs? Is that a better choice?
