32x CD-RW Disks

  Macaonasa 10:11 13 Aug 2004

My son has bought me a burner that rewrites at 32X. Anyone know if blanks are available yet?

blanks are available to write at much higher speeds than that, 52xspeed is more common place, however i always burn at 24 to save making coasters. ;-)

forget my post please i was refering to cd-rs, doh.

CD-RW disks are often unreliable enough in the 1-10x range (much poorer reflectivity levels than CD-Rs) to even consider 32x versions.

Better using a CD-R in multisession form until full - they can also be formatted if required.

I have 24 speed CDRW disc's and 45 speed CDR

45x CD-R is an unusual speed.

I once replaced a CD-RW rewriter for a pal which included 36x write speed - the more usual pattern for manufacturers was 32x to 40x.

Thanks sidecar. Unfortunately the £11 pack costs £15 to get to N. Ireland! £26 in total.

should have said 48 Speed

52x and 54x CD-Rs have been available for some considerable time...:-)

Maybe but I am not going to throw away all my 48 speed blanks to get 2 or 4 speed difference. Doubt if I would see the difference anyway.
