Do Cd-rewritable drives have the capability of writing on a cd more than once per cd?  My friend said the cheaper ones can only write on a cd once and the more expensive ones can write on cds and delete but the cd's are much more expensive that way.  Is this true?  And if so, is their a way you can tell by the name of the drive if it can write more than once or not?

cfrericks,
Most of the newer CD-recorders are multi-session capable.  That means yes, you can record more than once to the disk, adding new information at a later time.
As far as erasing goes, it's done with the newer CDRW drives, which uses a different, more expensive blank.  They an be erased and re-used many (up to 1000) times.
CD recording is not an exact science yet for the consumer, but you can get reliable results with todays recorder/software cominations.
For more info see the newsgroup at comp.publish.cdrom.hardware
I hope this helps,
Ralph
