Carbon wheels, which pads and why

As title states, if you have carbon wheels which pads you use and why.

Cork or other?

The wheels will come with the kind of pads you need, but yeah I believe they are cork with carbon. With carbon wheels that have carbon braking surfaces the regular pads are too aggressive and will ruin the wheel.

Not enough info! There are carbon clinchers, clinchers or tubulars. Clinchers you can run regular pads. Carbon clinchers and tubulars you need the cork pads for the carbon braking surface.

They are carbon with carbon braking area and tubulars if that matters. I have seen zipp 404's that have alum brake surfaces as well.
