For data disks -- which is better TAO or DAO?
By better I mean (a) most accurate -- for single session, and (b) which can be copied to a variety of computers.

For music -- which is best?
By best, I mean a disk which will play on a variety of players, computers, etc.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for pointing me to hundreds of articles -- but they are for techies.

So my basic, newbie Qs are:

(a) To back up data in a single session on a disc which can be copied to a variety of computers at a later date -- which is better (re accuracy) TAO or DAO?

(b) For audio discs, I gather the best method is DAO.

If you're talking about a single session to give a closed CD, which can then be read as a standard CD on other systems, use DAO.

I myself only use DAO for all... data,audio whatever and have no problems with using disks on other pc's at all.
