Just a quick silly one this...My CDRW is rated as 12-8-32.What I don't know is which number relates to Reading,Writing & Rewritting.I have checked the manual withought sucess.Is the speed rating order always stated the same way round ?

The order is normally CD-R, CD-RW, CD-ROM. In you case 12xCD-R 8xCD-RW 32xCD-ROM

12 x write
8 x re-write
32 x read

I believe that the slowest speed stated is usually the re-write speed, as is the fastest the read speed. Although with today's write speeds I wouldnt be suprised if they write normal cd-r's at the same speed as they read!

Hope this helps.
