    Can you use CD-DA (the CDs designed for use in the standalone CD replicator) in a conventional CD-R burner and burn them like a CD-R? I do know that CD-DAs have that RIAA-type of royalty tax applied to them, so they tend to be more expensive.

    Yes you can Pat, but not the other way around, Audio only cd's have a byte pressed in them at the factory that the stand alone recorder looks for. They should work fine in your pc cd.
