Collectible Blank CDs Aimed at ‘Rings’ Fans

If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.

In a nod to the popularity of CD burners, Apple Computer Inc. and Time Warner Inc.'s Reprise Records label today will begin marketing blank “Lord of the Rings"-themed CDs.

The companies are aiming for fans to purchase the CD and use it to store a digital copy of the film soundtrack bought online.

As part of the promotion, the label will sell three different blank CDs outfitted with images from Time Warner’s “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” film. Apple’s iTunes Music Store will offer the recordable CDs, which will sell for $4.99, exclusively today through Jan. 5.

The offering comes as major labels have been scrambling to reverse a three-year sales slump -- much of which they blame on the rise of free file-sharing networks and the practice of “burning” digital music files to blank CDs.

But label executives said the practice had become so mainstream that it made sense to try incorporating it into their business.

“We want to adapt to the consumer habit,” said Robin Bechtel, chief of new media for Warner Bros. Records and Reprise Records. “For a while, this has been the next logical step.”

Label executives are pitching the blank CD as a collectible item. Reprise will press 1,000 copies of each of the three discs, and each will be numbered.

After the Apple promotion, the label will auction the first 50 numbered copies of each of the three disc designs on EBay, label officials said. Another numbered run will be sold through New Line Cinema’s Web site.

Reprise may begin selling blank CDs tied to other album releases at traditional music retail stores next year.

The CD-R is dead – and Generation Z are lucky to have avoided it

I am no music format fetishist. If I ever read another piece about the warmth of vinyl, it will be too soon. Cassette Store Day is a scam. Even my local charity shop won’t take promo CDs, and I am long past the age where coasters and wind chimes made from CDs constitute appropriate homeware.

But a recent viral tweet made me nostalgic for my teenage music consumption habits while also shining a stark light on the absurdity of all format nostalgia. “Maybe its the generation Z in me, but how did people burn CDs?” tweeted 17-year-old Alyssa this weekend. “Like, how did you just get a blank CD and put songs on it?” A fair question – which almost 2,000 people answered with varying degrees of detail and disgust.

Songs are intangible: while there are valid arguments about streaming decreasing its perceived worth, music arriving seamlessly down a digital pipe is perhaps the medium’s most logical manifestation. Like the weather, it is just there. And so the laborious process of putting music on a CD – to play on a home stereo (in decline), a car (in decline), a cumbersome Discman (practically a collectors’ item), or as a mixtape to charm a potential sweetheart (replaced by Spotify playlists) – seems antediluvian to a generation that has never had to bother with it.

Think about it: a stack of CD-Rs – single-use, easily scratched and lost – arrived on a kind of spindly plastic top hat. Like the top hat, said to have caused a riot when haberdasher John Hetherington first wore it in public in January 1797, the CD-R caused mass consternation in the music industry. If cassettes and home taping (recall how it “killed music”) were a way of making a barely audible version of your mate’s My Bloody Valentine album or some John Peel curios, then the CD-R was a way to create an identical copy of almost identical quality, a bit like the Star Trek replicator – and almost as big, though less reliable when the burner drive failed and the CD got stuck spinning in a hot, angry vortex. You borrowed friends’ CDs, copied every CD from the local library or stole music off a swashbuckling site called the Pirate Bay. Then you carried them around in a bulky wallet in case you urgently needed a change of soundtrack on the bus ride home.

For a certain strain of entrepreneurial pirate, CD-Rs were a licence to print money. And boy, did they see me coming. Growing up in Cornwall in the early 2000s, I didn’t have broadband access until I was 16. My allotted 15 weekly minutes online prior to that was barely long enough to pirate a single track, let alone all the Libertines bootlegs I wanted. So I turned to eBay, spending my waitress’s wages on ripped copies of The 77 Demos, Babyshambles’ Chicken Shack Sessions and Pete Doherty’s Whitechapel Demonstrations, which took on a sentimental value far greater than the approximate 7p cost of the CD, label and plastic wallet. For a brief, naive period in 2004, I believed I had acquired theactual copy of Danger Mouse’s Grey Album bootleg off eBay. At £16 – top hat doffed to that unscrupulous seller – it probably should have been.

I had just started working in what could charitably be called a failing record shop (even the staff would take CDs home to burn them, then bring them back). While fewer and fewer people were coming in to buy CDs, we did do a roaring charity in under-the-counter CD-R bootlegs of Arctic Monkeys’ Beneath the Boardwalk demos for other local fans foiled by Cornwall’s derisory dial-up speeds. We did the same, though less successfully, for Maximo Park a year or two later. I soon saved my record shop earnings to buy an iPod, one of the gadgets that was putting us out of business.

It all feels so silly, funny and slightly sad to look back on. I don’t miss it: the bulk, the scratches, the ease with which your little brother could snap a beloved mixtape in two. I don’t believe that physical engagement with media makes you cherish it more – if at 15 I could have ripped streams, today’s most popular form of piracy, I’d be in faster than you could say “jewel case packaging”. “This is such a wild concept to me, I feel so young,” Alyssa replied to one patient CD-R explainer. The wild concept for me is the banal fate of every generation: to watch their youth pile up in landfill.

Home Computer Blank CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray Discs

You can use blank CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs to save backups of important programs, keep sensitive information safe, and free up space on your computer. Blank media discs come in a variety of storage capacity sizes and formats that range from 700MB all the way past 5GB. All blank discs require a disc reader to store and retrieve information and data.

Is there a difference between DVD-R and DVD-RW?

The difference between DVD-R and DVD-RW discs is how the media can be used. The DVD-R stands for recordable while DVD-RW stands for rewritable.

  • The key difference between DVD-R and DVD-RW is DVD-Rs can only be used once to record and save information.
  • DVD-RWs can be written on over and over again, allowing for file transfers and temporary data storage.
  • Both DVD-R and DVD-RW discs offer space to store information.
Will you need a CD, DVD, or Blu-ray disc?

What you need depends on what you are using the media for. CDs, DVDs, and Blu-rays can store a max amount of data each. If you are storing large programs, videos, or a lot of audio, you are going to need to go for a larger type, such as a DVD or Blu-ray disc. CDs have the lowest amount of storage, and a blank DVD has a bit more. Blu-ray discs offer a large amount of data storage.

Will all disc readers read a blank DVD-R?

Not all disc readers will be able to read writable or rewritable CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs. The way these readers work is that a specific laser is needed to read the information stored. Oftentimes, manufacturers will create combo readers and players that allow users to read multiple types, such as combo DVD and Blu-ray players.

What is a jewel case?

A jewel case simply refers to the plastic housing inside of which you can store blank DVDs or other media. Blank media with jewel cases are used to keep track of specific information stored on each CD, DVD, or Blu-ray disc. You can purchase blank DVDs with or without jewel cases or the jewel cases by themselves.

What do the terms MB and GB stand for?

In computing terms, the terms MB and GB denote the storage sizes of blank DVD and other disc types. MB is short for megabytes while GB stands for gigabytes. When comparing blank DVDs, CDs, and Blu-rays, the amount of data you need to store will determine the media storage size you will need. Blank CDs offer around 800MB of data. Blank DVDs and Blu-rays can offer more than 5GB of space to store information.
