  2. What is the media for MagicVideo CD?
    CD-R is short for "CD-Recordable". Recordable CDs are WORM (Write Once, Read Multiple) media that work just like standard CDs. The advantage of CD-R over other types of optical media is that you can use the discs with a standard CD player. The disadvantage is that you can't reuse a disc.

     A related technology called CD-Rewritable (CD-RW) allows you to erase discs and reuse them, but the CD-RW media doesn't work in all players.
  3. Are MagicVideo CDs  identical to normal CDs?
    The CDs you buy in a store are pressed from a mold. MagicVideo CDs (CD-Rs) are burned with a laser.
