Default Burning CDs

To burn CDs of .WAV files to play on ordinary CD players, what sort of media should I use, to have maximum compatibility? eg, CD-R(?)

Thanks

I don't know if it's the "best" or "most universal" way, but I use standard CD-Rs, the kind you buy at Office Despot. Works fine in my computers, CD players, and car stereo.

Thanks guys - and to put multiple albums onto one disc, what DVD format might work in CD players - eg DVD-Audio??

I would be taking my music to a friend's event, and want a format I can rely on working

None. No BR either.

Then you can only rely on redbook, i.e. audio CD. Modern CD players tend to support MP3 CDs, but it's not a given.

And by all means use quality CD-R, like Taiyo Yudens.

You can also use a USB stick in case there's a computer around. Or bring a portable MP3 player (+ adapters).

BluRay. You should look into a burner for archiving. 25GB of bulk storage for <$1 US. Burners <$100 US
