I have a question about CD-RW's and audio recording.
I'm hoping to burn a 60-min MP3 (weekly radio program) several times on one CD. I've never used CD-RW's before, but I've heard re-writing audio causes a loss in the playback quality. Anyone have any experiences with this? Are particular brands/speeds better for this kind of thing?
I have an iBook G4 running Panther, 10.3.9
Thanks so much for your help!

Writing MP3s to CD doesn't lose quality, because it's only decompressing the audio. The problem comes if you recompress it back to MP3, so nothing to worry about there.
Unfortunately, a standard CD is only 74 (or 80 at a stretch) minutes, so you'll only get 1 on a disk.
CD-RWs are no different to CD-Rs when it comes to data quality. However, you'll find that erasing time is quite long, and that they do take longer to burn that single use CD-Rs due to the way the technology works.
