Default Re: cd r's

once the data is on the disk you can not delete or edit it. you can write as many files as you want up to the point of say 650 or 700 MB.

CD-RW you can delete the data

yeah, cd-r's can only be written to once so make sure you have everything you want ready before you burn it. they're cheap enough these days, you can get a ton of them for not very much money.

You can write to them as much as you want as long as you don't finalize them. You CAN delete them too, but you can't get the memory back.
