I need to test a few drives for their ability to burn at 16X in some external enclosures. I rarely burn at 16X so I want to make sure I am not missing something. I plan to put a burned -R disc in the drive and run a burst test from CDSpeed. When I have done this in the past with drives and enclosures that have been proven to work at certain speeds, the results were consistent.
Short of wasting a lot of discs to test burn in CDSpeed, will my plan work? If not, is there a better idea.
