What can I use to burn Redbook-compliant CDs?
Well. Most CD authoring programs will get you close. iTunes, Winamp, Nero, etc will burn a CD that adheres to some of the standard, and will make CDs that play in most players – mostly because most CD players are pretty forgiving. However, these CDs are not guaranteed to work everywhere, and if you’re trying to make a master to send to a replication plant, you want something that will be full-on compliant, or there’s a good chance they’ll reject it. This can range from something simple like Toast Platinum to something expensive like Sequoia.
