    It's a totally different production process and can only be done in a factory.
    There are companies where you can order e.g. 1000 CDs that are then made for you in a factory.
     
  3. Yea the pro-quality CDs are actually stamped out instead of burned as you would with your computer.
    They are also much less likely to be damaged or corrupted.

    Hint: Do not leave CDs you've burned yourself in a hot car (even out of direct sunlight).
    They can get skronked very easily.

    I don't remember off the top of my head but I think its like around a dollar per CD...or like some fraction of a dollar depending on how many your making...its a scalable rate that works similarly to buying blank cd-r discs
    I think that it would be logical to think they could transfer rom cd-r that you made at hoem to bulk cd production.
