How long are you going to keep them on the disc?

With the minimal cost of CD-R's these days, there is no reason to ever use a CD-RW. Stick with CD-R and enjoy better compatibility, increased longevity and faster burning speeds.

Another vote for CD-R, and if you are going to store photos I recommend Maxell CD-R Pro's (Taiyo Yuden).

Deffinately, there are very few CD-Rs around anywhere that can compete with those.
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R
