I do find it amazing that people can’t seem to understand that burning CD’s at a speed higher than they are rated for produces errors. Those ratings are there for a reason. You burn faster than a CDR’s rated speed, there’s a greater probability you will have errors on the disc.
But there is a big problem with the speed rating…
I got three CDRs, 1st. “Platinum/40x rated”, 2nd “Philips/32x rated”
and the last one “Octron/24x rated”…
Now, all three CDR are the same! Produced by Ritek:
This Disc is designed for CD-RW/COMBO Drive Only.
Disc Type, Material = CD-R, Phthalocyanine
ATIP Lead-in = 97m 15s 17f
Norminal Capacity = 702.83MB (79m 59s 73f)
Disc Manufacturer maybe = RiTEK,JS
SMART-BURN Speed Limit = 48X
And it’s kinda strange. The 24x and even the 40x rated CDRs
can only be written @ 24x with no errors.
The Philips 32x can take 32x with no errors.
So it ain’t possible to burn at 40x to the “pseudo 40xers”
Yeah, I know that SMART-X related slowdowns of the LiteOn
drives. But the NEC accelrated back to full speed after the
