Looking for the right burnable discs for storing your latest recordings and audio files? Here at Sweetwater we strive to provide you with quality merchandise and plenty of options to meet all your needs. Let us take you on a tour of our CD media so that you can save time and still make the right decision for yourself!
What types of burnable discs are there? Basically, you can choose between two main types of CD media – CD-R and CD-RW discs. Both types allow you to transfer your data to them using a special kind of software, but there's one major difference. While the CD-R ones are only for writing, CD-RW discs also allow you to erase the existing information and rewrite it with new data.
What's the difference between silver and white CDs? As you'll be able to see while browsing through our selection, we offer CDs with different types of surfaces. While some are silver, others have white finishes. Contrary to what you might think, this is not at all about appearances – the difference is in what you can do with the disc once you've transferred your music to it. With both types of CDs, you can use markers to keep track of their contents. However, white ones can also absorb drops of ink, so they're the choice for you if you like the idea of being able to print on your CDs!
How do you know whether the CD media of your choice is compatible with your disc printer? It's actually pretty straightforward. There are two types of printers available – thermal and inkjet. To choose the right burnable discs, you only need to match them to the type of printer you own or use.
How many CDs are there in a single package? When it comes to quantity, we carry packages of 50 to 100 individual CDs. Save more by stocking up now, and you won't have to rush out to the store the next time you record!
