Default CD media for rough use

Had almost decided to buy an ipod to hook up to my car CD player, then did a cost benefit analysis and figured that CD's were cheaper.
bought one of those "cd books" which carry 80 cd's now to the part of getting 80CD's originally used some Moser baers ( not the pro version), some of which have started skipping very fast.

what media (easiest to get are moserbaer pro and Sony) would be best to stand the rough handling in a car ?

Just get whatever you like and then create a new copy of the CD once the old one goes bad :P.

Maxell and TDk are a bit costly compared to Moser baer.
I personally hook up my USB drive for songs, and if you don't have that option then all you can do is to keep the CD's back in the CD pack once you have used them to prevent scratches.
Also, always keep a CD in your CD player to prevent dust from gathering on the CD player's lens.

If you are referring to Audio CDs and If your player supports USB,
Just rip all the Audio CDs to mp3 and store them in a Thumb Drive.
Plugin the Thumb Drive in the USB port and play the song you want.

1. Thumb Drive size is very small and you can carry 100s of songs in a small Thumb Drive.
2. Since they have Flash Memory, [no moving parts] they last longer.
3. You can store 80 CDs songs in one 8GB Thumb Drive [assuming size of 1 song is < 10MB and 1 cd has 10 songs].
4. You can also use Thumb Drive for other purposes.

My 2 Cents.
