Does it really matter if I try to burn at 48x vs. ‘Smartburn’? What exactly does smart burn do lol? I’ve half a mind to just play it safe and burn everything at 32x tho…

Uhhhhh SmartBurn is a tool that can scan media. Check the tool link in my sig for more info.
Perhaps you are refering to something else?

Yes, he is, since he’s asking about the LiteOn technology not the LiteOn tool. LMAO.

Ssseth, a tip for you > if you have a LiteOn, take a look at the box.

@vallybally, if you want to play it safe w/o having coasters, don’t uncheck Smart-Burn.

Smart Monitoring & Adapting Recording Technology for BURNing

SMART-BURN is the abbreviation of " Smart Monitoring & Adapting Recording Technology for BURNing ", innovated CD-RW technology by LITE-ON IT, will be introduced to other products in the future.

Users always want to successfully burn a disc with a higher speed in CD-RW drive. You may know, there are so many brands of CD-R / CD-RW media in the market with irregular quality & still being cost down in the price war.

If your CD-R / CD-RW media quality is really poor enough or working environment is too hot to induce the Laser Power over margin, the CD-RW drive detected, the burning speed will be forced to decrease to get more reliable Laser working power to secure the life of CD-RW drive & burning quality.ategy parameters plus the outstanding running Optimum Power Calibration ( OPC ) function to provide you the best burning quality.

The buffer under run error is also no longer happened to your drive anymore, SMART-BURN also can allow drive to be suspended during writing, than continue to burn from last point when enough data get in the buffer.

SMART-BURN features :

  1. Buffer Under Run Error Free

  2. Running Optimum Power Calibration

  3. Automatic Writing Strategy & Burning Parameters

  4. Automatically decrease burning speed when Laser power over margin due to poor media quality or high temperature.

Ah sweet, thx BoSkin! I thought it may have something to do with on-the-fly adjusting…do you think with top quality media tho you can have slightly less errors with say 32x or so ? (ie smartburn would probably be going near 48x with top qual media). I don’t mind waiting an extra minute :slight_smile:

Does my NEC have anything similar lol?
