What type of CD's should I buy to burn music onto? This is so I can play in my standard cd player. I've been told they have to be CDAs but could I not just use CDR?

Any type of CD will do, you just have to burn the CD as a Audio CD, this will take the mp3's and convert them into proper format for CD player.

CD-R will be fine. To ensure maximum compatibility with CD players, burn at a low speed -- 8x if your burning software supports that low a speed.
