They are not even CD-Rs they are factory pressed CDs which means the data is stamped into a metal sheet and not burnt into a dye layer like a CDR / CDRW.

Apart from the cost (CD-RWs are more expensive to manufacture because of the technology incorporated i.e. reusable with a rewriter), CD-ROMs have been used in this form for several years.

In any case, you should avoid CD-RWs wherever possible as they are a long way from being as efficient or reliable as a CD-R - if you want to prevent CD-R wastage use it in multisession form until it is full.
