there is a difference between a CD-R and a CD... not directly the sound 
quality, but how long the data is preserved... CD-R's decay much faster 
than printed CD's, even faster when not stored right. Of course, this 
also depends on the brand of CD-R you get: some are better than others.
So in the end, it may be cheaper to get the real CD instead of a burned 
copy of it... as you have to renew the second one from time to time. Of 
course, if you don't like the music anymore after a few years, then 
there's no problem...
