Hey guys, I have some of the TY fujifilm discs and wanted to make a compilation cd-r. When i make these discs, i squeeze as much as I possibly can onto one cd. So id did some test in nero cd speed with the overburning tests.
Using my lite-on ltr48125w, i tested a capacity of 89:57.72 minutes @ 40x. It casme back and told me maximum capacity is 82:48:38. Using the same capacity at 24x gave me 82:59:72.
So i got to thinking, the lower the burn speed, the more you ca fit. I ran the test again at 12x but this time it just kept going. It went all the way up to 89:57:72 and said the test has finished without and error, please select a higher capacity.
I thought it was a fluke and told it to test 99:59:59 @ 12x. Same thing. Now i know its impossible to fit 19 minutes more on an 80 minute disc. So whats the deal it did the same at 4x.
Well i decided since it wasn’t going to give me a difinitive answer, i would burn at 4x and see what would happen.
Total play time on all my tracks in winamp was 82:56.62. Nero said total time was 83:08:62. So i burn with my liteon at 4x in the newest version of nero 188.8.131.52 in DAO mode. It took 22minutes but nero said it worked perfectly.
So i pop it out and play it in my protable cd player to test it out. There were 20 tracks. the first 19 played perfectly. The last track was 2:33 and it played fine up to 1:54 then it started to get real crackly and at about 2:10 dead silence.
SO heres my question, is the overburning test in cd speed not accurate. I did a little math and came up with 82:16 as the max play time, because thats where the cd startded to cut out. I would like to know what others have had the same experience and what their results were.
