    Default CD-R Queries

    Sorry, I have some queries re burning to - CD-R (not a CD-RW)

    1. When can you give the CD-R a name? Is it only before the burn takes place & if the CD-R is blank?

    2. Will only a finalised CD-R play on a CD player (if it is an audio CD-R)

    3. Can you hide / delete / add files on a finalised CD-R?

    4. Is there any way of knowing whether a data or audio CD-R been created?

    5. How do you see everything that has been saved on a CD-R including any hidden files?

    7) Why the questions about a obsolete storage media ?


    its just not that simple.
    Too many factors with differing Media types, player/recorder capability & recording type/format

    To answer all your questions.
    Dont use CDR .

    1) It depends.
    Depends on how its being recorded .

    2)
    audio CDR's wont play on SOME audio CD Players . Usually the EU Philips based CD Audio Players that could have issues .
    I had that with (some) Marantz, Philips, Blaupunkt players .
    Usually not an issue though

    2 ) part 2)
    there is also "AUDIO CDR Disks" . Its a completely different thing .
    These are for a few Hifi CD Recorders . In the EU, there was a fuss about piracy & copying Audio CD's on HIFI equipment
    So it was decided that Hifi Audio CD Recorders could ONLY use special "Audio CDR" . These AUDIO CDR were alot more expensive , and quite hard to get (the extra cost supposed to into a fund to pay royalties to musicians)
    Also , the HIFI CD Recorders could not use a digital input for the recording . That was intended to stop the recorded CD being a perfect copy .
    Just some useless history.

    3) nope

    4) yes

    5) depends on how it was recorded , what file format & what it was recorded with , and if the player can even read CDRs (some couldnt)


    6) Are you questions leading up to some spamming ?

    the same reasons that you wouldnt use 5" floppies
    or Zip Drives
    or Win95
    or Seagate Bigfoots

    Yes, all those are usuable , doesnt make them a good choice .
    Its 2022 after all.

    If he was specifically wanting to burn audio CD's , then thats a different story .

    Funny, I still use CD-Rs a lot, actually. Both for data and audio.

    And I play with Windows 95 occasionally, and I've got a 386 with a Bigfoot in it...
