Well, I have some slightly large MP3 files (each around 750 MB+) and they can’t fit on an 80-min TY CD-R, no matter how far I would try to overburn in my Plextor Premium. I will be archiving these on to DVD-Rs, but I want to run them in my MP3 CD player, so I have to find a way to get them on to CD-Rs (and reencoding at a lower bitrate just for this is problematic, as they are already low (192 kbps)).
What’s the best alternative: Buying 90, 99, or 100-minute blanks or using GigaRec at 1.2x and just hoping that the disc gets read by as many drives as possible?
Plus, I don’t really need the full 100+ minutes on every disc (in fact, one of my files is ~750 MB and I have only two that’s over a crazy 900 MB (one being my biggest MP3, at around 1030 MB)).
Are 90-minute discs really 100-minute ones that just have an 89:57:74 TOC or do they really only run 90 minutes on the actual spiral?
Are there less compatibility problems when you use a 90-minute disc than with a 100-minute one?
Finally, if I were to get these, I need a place that ships at least to the US, but preferred if it was actually in the US or Canada.
Thanks very much if any info is given out on the subject…
