Edited text of question.
Are you asking the diffrence between a music CD, and a data CD?

CD-R is a rewriteable drive assignment.
This page should give you more than you would want to know about CDs:

if i understand what you all asking, there is no real difference between cdr and cdr-audio except for marketing purposes.  when you decide what you want burned to the cdr, your software will pick the right format for the burn.

pwoolford:  Can you be more specific?  There are hundreds of links at this site.

joanb:  The basic format of the two is the diffrence. (I would tell you more if I new off the top of my head.) Are you simply trying to understand it, or is there a reason for needing the information?
Sorry, you will just have to look through.  I had a quick look at the second batch and this looked like what you wanted to know.  Please feel free to delete my answer if you feel it is not comprehensive enough
Dear Joan,

I just purchased both a CD-R and a
CD-R Audio and was wondering the same question. The CD-R was about a dollar cheaper. Is the CD-R for data only? is what I am wondering. There is nothing on the package of the regular CD-R telling me it won't work for audio. It would be wonderful to know.
