    Lately, I've been burning music CD's and having them end up bad. They twitch in some stereos, won't play in some, and end up good in some! I use Sony 700MB 40x CD-R's. What brand of CD-R's do you guys recommend for music?

    i'm currently using infinity cd's and have had no problems at all
    what speed are you burning your cd's at?
    i suggest burning a couple of steps down from the max speed of your burner (assuming it's above 16 speed). my cd writer is capable of 16x so i burn at around 12x.
    the extra couple of minutes it takes to burn doesn't really matter and the number of errors may be reduced.
    cd choice is pretty much down the the user though, most people start buying one brand and just continue, it's kinda like cpu manufacturers. most people will either haver amd or intel

    cdr's are cheaper...most want to keep music they burn, why use cd-rw for music


    I don't use anything fancy, generic works for me. I get the 50pk spindle for $7 (US) at Fry's Electronics and like KrackHead2k says just burn at a lower speed. I use 8x for movies, 12x for music, 24x for applications despite the cdr-drive being a 48x.

    Edit
    Those are my preferences B)

    Well, I mean I could see them for backup, but for like music, you usually end up getting tired of the music on the CD-R, and then you are left with a disc of old music after awhile......
