There is a difference, and somewhere there is a website descibing them, i
can't remember, so you have my (likely corrupted) memory recolection:

Only the bottom matters, but if you can see light (translucent) then it is a
bad type. And while they may work, avoid writing on ones like that, as it may
go through the paint, and into the actuall material.

Colors do matter
The blue verbaitim cdrs are a propriatary mixutre which is pretty
good. The silver is the best
The gold-green is the worst (light blue too), and don't have a good shelf
life. (if properly taken care of, they work for years, just don't have a
really critical thing on only one of them.)

Basically what it said was (unlike lots of hardware/software) it pays to get
good CDRs.
(I personally have had no problems with a light blue, but verbaitim ones mess
up the CD -RW, which spits out a coaster)

IF you know that I am messing up PLEASE CORRECT ME. 

Here is a website
What it doesn't talk about is what color uses what die, and I think that i
have it right above (in terms of quality), but double check before buying a 30
or more cd spindle

Hope this is right, and helps
James L.
