I'm wondering if anyone has tried using Black Bottom Memorex CDR? Does anyone know what speed they can write up to when used with the new Lite-On 40 and 48x CD Writers?

Here's the ATIP info from one of the discs:

The box says:

"Recordable Black CD-R"

I picked these discs up from Futureshop (Canada)

Thanks!

Max mine said was 16X using media checker on a non-OC, true 48125W with VS02. They do make good audio discs for the car though. Not sure why, but they have lasted longer than any other CDR.

hello there !

i’m using the same software, i.e. Feurio 1.65.5
so, as you can see there, in the settings section the writing speed for Black Memorex 1x-24x is unfortunately limited to 24x
and no manufacturer could be defined neither.

To me it looked like it would be much safer if i burnt those at 20x or lower, ‘cos once i simulated writing at 24x, the burning failed at the point of 45’ 10’’

Hope this might be helpful 4 ya ! :wink:
