Here’s the ATIP & Smart Burn information:

I’ve tried to make some faster 99 minute discs, but the results were not acceptable. In some cases, the burn will not finish at all, it’s as though the burner can’t track the groove on the outer edge at higher speeds.
As I make more 99 minute burns, I’ll try and increase the speed to see where the maximum is. My theory has always been: cut costs by lowering the speed and prevent a coaster. 99 minute discs are still about $1.00 each here in Canada. My burn @ 48x failed to finish at all. I’m reluctant to make too many coasters, just to find out a maximum speed.
