Default Really should know this but don\'t, so ...

Should I back up (to CD-RW)as audio or data?

Whilst we're on the subject of things I should know but don't (yet), why is it that when I back up to the same CD-RW I have to erase the disk first? Shouldn't I be able to back up new and changed files only, without erasing everything? I use MusicMatch Jukebox Plus.

Standard Data CD-R's. ISO9660 format is best if you plan on sharing with Mac PT users. PC's can read that just fine too.

Personally, I have always used CD-R's instead of CD-RW's - 'RW's have always been more hassle than they're worth IMO.

Jonah,
On your first question, for backing up PT sessions and audio files, you definitely save as Data. You would save as Music mainly for playback of existing songs or mixes.
On the CD-RW question, I do not know the answer. I use a fresh CD every time..

I believe on CDRW's you have to reformat every time you backthem up. They have multiple uses, but not multiple file copying. You cna add to a CDRW, but you can not overwrite without going through the whole disk again. So, if you want to add a newer updated session to an RW, stick in a new CDRW, or reformat your old CDRW.

Yesterday I saw an ad for an IoMega zip drive that hold 750MB. Faster thank writing a CD and runs on both USB 2.0 and 1394.

I was interested. Still don't have my 1394 DVD-RW...
