Actually there is a difference I should mention on the list.  "Music" CD-Rs
do have a 'flag' burned into them that identifies them as "music"
discs.  Most consumer cd recorders (the kind that connect to your hi-fi)
will only accept "music" CD-Rs.  This assures the RIAA it's cut, every time
you copy a CD.
