I believe that you have to use CD-R AUDIO disks and make sure that it says AUDIO on the cd's . The Sony that I have will not accept regular cd-r's to record on.

I believe they all do but I do find best results for me are with the Mobile Fidelity Soundlab 24KT discs. Not the cheapest ($3.50 each; probably cheaper in bulk) but I have been recording for a few years now, leave many discs in the 6 disc changer in my car for months at a time and have never had any dropouts, skips, ill effects, etc. I had started with some cheapo Sony's and the dropouts and static were rediculous. I do believe you (usually) get what you pay for. My CD-R's do sound incredible (Alesis Masterlink CD Recorder, Walker Audio Valid Points, Shunyata Python PC and Hydra line conditioner)
No. All cannot use just any CD blank. Many recorders require usage of music type blanks. The price difference is not that much , but the selection is poor and getting harder to find. Some Music CDR's like Memorex would still not record on my Marantz recorder.
I bought a Tascam pro and it will use any type of blank.
Makes great CDR's even from Analog sources.
I've heard this topic for some time, and the machine you use determeins that, although, trying those used in a PC setup can't hurt.... either they'll work or not. Right?
The roaylaty mention is accurate too.
Blank CDs like audio & video components differ in quality too. Mostly though it's their ability to be used with the burner in question. some burners like some blank CDs, some don't. Many CD/DVD burner makers provide a list of compatible discs for use with their products. you can start there, but that list isn't cast into stone, unless you are calling the burner maker for support.... then you'll have to say you used their acceptable listed discs.
