As far as I can tell, there are only two types of recordable CDs, widely available: CD-R and Audio
CD-R. The Picture CD you're referring is probably only a CD-R which has a better life span than
regular CDs. On the Memorex site, it says it comes with a software to edit picture. So I'd say
it's a regular CD-R.
Just for the record, Audio CD-R are used in the home CD recorders, units you can connect to an
amplifier (not a computer). I have a NAD CD recorder at home and it cannot use regular CD-R /
CD-RWs, only those specially identified "Audio CD-R / RW" (of course, they're more expensive!)
