And i have also read, in response to the above article, various articles n forums where ppl state that cd-rw is a better archiving medium bcos it uses a different type of layer to that of cd-r.
Well this ones really tricky.
CD-RW perform better under some conditions. But they also perform worse on others.
I would take cd-r's over cd-rw's because under my conditions cd-r's will have a better change of survival and I think it counts for most people.
For more info do your own research and dig up some actuall results or you can waite till I have much more time and could actually post some good info about it. Which is probally a long time !!!
Don't want to sound rude but my time is currently to limited to make stuff like this.
