    i think any cds are alright (CD-R, CD-RW) just burn them at the lowest speed so they better quality and dont skip and shit!

    yea voice is right, some older cd decks will have trouble with low quality cds, just always get branded ones (verbatim, sony etc, i got some fujifilm ones for cheap off ebay and they are bang on).

    doesn't matter so much for mp3 cds but if you are burning a proper audio cd stick to 8x speed or less (y)

    they can't be bad for the price, probably cheapish branded ones with custom labels. they dont look like they leave a lot of space on for writing track names on though, and for only 25, £10 is a little steep but it depends on how quickly you use them i guess.

    ^^ more or less same price, but for 50 instead of 25, plenty of space to write on.

    When we play out I always burn fresh CDs but keep the old ones in my record bag just in case. Then at least you have a back up if it turns to fail.

    I always use Verbatim for anything... CD's and DVD's. I have never had a single one give me any problems, even on old ones that have been scratched up a bit.
