Does anyone know if the ordinary TDK writable cds now contain the code to be recognised as audio cds

If you don't know or choose to disbelieve what I'm talking about then ok

Apparently sinceTDK discontinued their audio cdr, they've put the code on their standard cdr. The only other type commonly available Maxell, has a very thin reflective and dye layer. Presumable because they need to pay a licence fee to the RIAA.

So they don't play as well in for instance car cdr players

I could be totally wrong but can't any cd-r discs have audio burnt to them using WMP or iTunes? I've used many different brands of disc over the years and can't say I've ever had a problem burning audio to them and playing them back in a standard car cd player.
Got to say - never heard of this. I've burnt many CD's over the years and never had one issue. I thought it was more to do with the unit you play them in - i.e. some players can't recognise the disc. Saying that, I've never had one bit of equipment fail to play one yet.
It's not really about disbelieving you. It's just most people wouldn't bother with the "CD-R for audio" discs. I know the argument with them supposedly being better etc. but I've never seen a benefit over "data" discs which are cheaper anyway.

Of course, it's a moot point now anyway, considering you cannot 'legally' make a copy of copyrighted material - even if you own the original CD.

Thanks all, I'm not really interested in people's opinions.
I just want to know if someone who is knowledgeable on the subject has tried these disks. I could buy some to try but apparently it only happened after they discontinued their audio version. They are actually a better buy if they are

To be honest you'd probably be better off asking this question on a specialist audio forum (such as Steve Hoffman or AV Forums) rather than HUKD.

You're probably right. There seem to be few knowleable people here. Ok I'll expire it
