Du är välkommen !

The only problem w it is that those are hard to get in Sweden

Try it internationally, here's just some clues :

Infiniti 99 minute CD-R

Yesbuy.net

Actually, it's 870 MB of data but depending on the manufacturer you can squeeze in even a bit more.

Since these cd's are really "modified" so to speak, some drives wont read them. When you squeeze it that tight, some drives will have a real problem reading it. My Plex1210a wont go beyond 89:59 So before you buy those cdr's see if your drive can actually read them.

I had read somewhere that we can only store 866 MB on a 99min CD-Rs.

Does this vary with different manufacturers?

I dont know if its the manufacturers of the cd's as much as the makers of the drives. While the cdr' play an important part in this, it really depends how your drive handles writing it.

That's true which I always do like e.g. burning over 83-84' on a 80' CD ( some manufacturers )
or 93-95' of audio on a 90' CD ( SKC currently ) but Dumbo did mean purely data.
