The only difference  between CD-Rs labeled "music" and other CD-Rs is that
the ones marked "music" have a tax included in the price as compensation to
the recording industry for the effects of "copying".  Same discs in either
package.  The speed issue is separate, and has to do only with how fast
they can be written to accurately.  You can put any kind of data on either
of them.
