How do I find out what the maximum speed I can burn certain CDs at (lost label)?

I have a bunch of TDK blanks that I lost the speed rateing on.
How do I find or figure out what is the maximum speed that I burn these at with out making costers?

Thanks,

Hi

Dont think there are any way of finding out how fast you can burn your cd’s. So to be sure, burn at 12/16x. I have a 48x burner and I never burn faster than 16x anyways :smiley:

You can e.g. check on SMART-BURN Speed Limit in SB Media Check

most programs will find it themselves, unless you want to burn them at greater than the actual max…

You could also try a couple of simulated burn processes with any CD-Burning program.

I have noticed that Nero will recognize the max burn speed of the CDRs I put into my RW drive. One CDR is labeled at 16X but nero give me the option to go up to 40X. On the other hand, another CDR is rated at 32X but nero allows me to select 48X. It seems to auto-adjust the speed for me.

Lite-on 48x24x48

@fjohan:
Will the weird myths about higher speeds lowering burning quality ever vanish?

@all: The Smart-Burn limit is not always accurate…
