No they do not require formating. I have used a stand alone stereo system to transfer some of my LPs to CD. I also, used my laptop to make CDs. What I did discover was that I needed to clean my stereo with a CD/DVD cleaner disc. But the CDs are already formatted.

Make sure your car stereo cd player already plays mp3 cds first. Older car cd players only played regular music (80 minute wave format) cds, not mp3 cds.
before it ships
Yes. You can burn any audio or mp3 to the disk.
You should be able to. I’m able to play these on a CD player in the house as well as my computer. That’s not a guarantee that it will work in the car but I feel pretty confident that it would.
Absolutely yes. When you burn the new CD you should be able to get 2 prerecorded CD’s onto 1 of the 700MB CD’s now. Good luck and enjoy the new music and CD’s.
Yes, these disks can be copied after data has been stored on them.
Info About Verbatim CD-R Blank Discs 700MB 80 Minutes 52x Recordable Disc for Data and Music – 50 Pack Spindle (Reviews From Amazon)
I just went thru a batch of 100 Verbatims & not a single bad disc in the bunch! I just ordered another 100!
I have an extensive CD collection. I’m talking EXTENSIVE. I make a lot of "BEST OF" compilations, MIXES & burn copies of my CD collection for use in the car because car players eat CDs like Jeffrey Dahmer ate fingers & toes. I go thru a lot of these. And they’re cheap, so I throw them around like Frisbees. I’ve been using Verbatims for years. They sound amazing and burn right every time. I’ve never had a problem.
I have one thing say about the people having trouble… LEARN to use your software.
Okay, two things… and never use Windows Media Player for burning. It’s awful. Use a third party burn software. I use Ashampoo freeware. It doesn’t have a ton of features, but it gets the job done. And it does it well.
For the price, Verbatims can’t be BEAT! They’re THE BOMB! Gotta run. I’m burning a Lover’s Rock Reggae MIX with a lot of bottom to showcase a sound system. I’m out!
No idea how they sound or the quality……I’m embarrassed to to say I purchased them to purposefully cut them up and make these projects. Love the reflective colors……Worth every penny…LOL
Before I go into my lengthy reasons, let me say, the Verbatim CD-Rs have the longest life of any CD-R I’ve ever used.
As far as CD-Rs go, a main concern is longevity. The major problem is that some CD-Rs start to develop “CD rot” after a while. That is when the ultra-thin reflective layer (usually aluminum), where the audio or other data is stored, starts to oxidize (rust), usually because of a manufacturing fault or mishandling of the disc. This leads to a deterioration in the sound, which begins as slight audible clicks which, over time, become louder and more frequent. Eventually, the rot will become so bad that the disc won’t play at all.
I used to be an audio engineer. At the studio I worked at, we tried many different brands of CD-Rs, everything from no-name product to the major brands. They were all over the map. I’ll try not to name names, but sometimes some of the ones you would least expect withstood the test of time (like Office Depot), while other lower-priced CD-Rs rotted within two years. Most of the big-name brand CD-Rs we tried turned out to have, on average, about an 85/15 chance of surviving. The brand we came to rely on was Verbatim. I still have audio discs made on Verbatim CD-Rs 18 years ago that still play absolutely fine. I can remember only a few that I had that bit the dust, buy hey, 1 out of every 200 or so… that’s a damn good ratio. Even those were probably due to a slight manufacturing error on a single disc in a batch, or me accidentally dropping it at some point.
Verbatim is the brand I always rely upon.
Often people complain the disc is faulty when it is not. When you burn a CD or other optical media burn at the slowest setting possible for better results. Windows media player does give you those options, or if you prefer "ImgBurn" an opensource software that works great & is easy to understand.No complaints with these discs. I did have a burning problem, but I witched to a different machine. That told me it wasn’t the disc, but that specific drive. Just some friendly advice. Take it or leave it.
I’ve bought the Verbatim brand for about three years now. I usually purchase them in physical stores but I needed some CD cases and I decided since I was running low of discs , to go ahead and get this pack of Verbatim while I was at it.
I’ve used several different brands of discs but I keep coming back to to the Verbatim brand. With other brands at least one out of every three discs failed to burn. The first time I used Verbatim discs, I was hesitant and thought I would be tossing at least half of them like I’ve had to do with other brands but lo and behold, out of the pack of 50 I only had two or three that failed.
I haven’t been disappointed in this pack of disc and will certainly be back to purchase more when I need them.
Burned 10 so far with no issue on a well used burner recycled from an old laptop. I have used these before as well as the DVD+&- blank disks and have had no issues with a single one outside of user error. I turn my burn speed down as a rule. I have been doing this for years because I have had zero (0) failed burns since 1998. My first computer had an 8x burner in it, but failed burns about half the time. New Gateway computer. I read in a forum that this was resolved by lowering the burn speed to 4x. It takes a little longer but it always burns successfully. That’s just my experience and with newer burners that burn at 52x and above? I don’t go half speed, I just drop to the next logical burn speed in the list, say 48x in this case. Have never, not once had a burn failure since I started doing this.
Obviously, never burn audio at speeds higher than 2x.
Obviously, these are not re-writable.
My very old car’s even older cd-player has an extremely picky laser and will only read CDs with a “classic” reflective profile, such as these. More and more of the old value-brands are using cheaper, lower quality base layers that can only be read by newer units with more powerful lasers (but otherwise much worse overall quality), so it’s nice to know that there are still some old & goodies like these kicking around for audiophiles and… well, clever folks who don’t want to pay a stupid amount of money to “upgrade” to something that’s objectively much worse than their existing 20 year old players.
If you are using a quality older unit, or a HIGH quality newer unit, you have nothing to worry about with these. They just work.
They’re a little pricey, though. It costs less than 1 cent to make AND fulfill a quality CD to a wholesaler and still turn a profit. 2000% cost inflation between there and here is definitely a little much.
I do a lot of burning with .flac files and wav files to CD-Rs for high fidelity playback on a rather high end Onkyo CD player.
That said these Verbatim CD-Rs and DVD-Rs have worked flawlessly for me since I switched from TDK a few years back.
The truth is most media is manf. if not in the same plant in China, in a plant next to that one. Media is so cheap now a days I don’t see how anyone can complain when they get a few bad disks?
As far as I’m concerned the Verbatim CD-Rs and DVD-Rs that I have used have worked perfectly every single time I have done a burn.
I do mean every single time I have done a burn these disks have worked. That’s correct that I’m stating I have NEVER had a bad burn using these disks with either my Pioneer BD-RE optical drive or my LG BD-RE optical drive.
The only time one of these disks didn’t work was when the optical drive itself had hardware issue. Otherwise stated the optical drive had a laser fail and was either garbage or sent back under warranty.
This is fantastic media and deserves a solid 5 star review that I almost never give anything that I buy. Until I get a bad batch which has never happened I’ll continue to use these disks and keep on burning my music .flac Free lossless audio codec) files or the old wav file standard that still works just fine with just about every CD player ever produced.
I have had good success with wav files in the default 16 bit 44.1k with CD players from 1986. The key is creating the disk in the default 16 bit 44.1k that even the most ancient of CD players will usually read.
Of course the newer CD players will usually work with every type of wav file and even most .flac I have tried. So blaming the media is usually just a excuse for creating a disk in the wrong format in the first place. ) Happy Computing to all 🙂 🙂
I’ve been using Verbatim CDs for many years and have always been impressed with their lack of “failures”. I use them mostly as back-up storage for photos and I need a trusted media for my pix. I tried other types of removable media, (i.e., “thumb drives”, portable hard drives, media cards, etc.) and everything failed at one time or another. They are all susceptible to impact, moisture, static discharge and more. CDs are not. The only thing is the storage issue or you’re a “clutz” and gouge the disc. With that said, I have found the Verbatim are the most reliable and very few fail to format (less than one in 100).
I’ve used Verbatim CDRs and DVDRs for years. I switched to these when TDK had some quality issues and have never tried anything else. I still use these for making mixed CDs for the car and for backing up data. I have never had a problem with them. My only complaints which are minor, is that I wish they wrote less on the label side of the disc where I use sharpies to label what it is. Also, TDK had better spindles where the clear plastic cover threaded onto the base, instead of the flanged lock base that these use – the TDK style just made it easier to store multiple spools next to each other since they didn’t step on each other’s flange toes!
