What is a CD Burner?

To erase or not to erase

The difference between being able to re-burn & re-burn information onto a CD is about one letter. A CD-R is a CD you can record information on only once. While the CD-RW, you can do as many rewrites as you want. The advantage might be obvious. However, CD-RW disks tend to be a bit pricier. Also, not all CD drives can read these disks. So do some hardware research before you buy & burn.
