It won't burn faster than the the disk itself allows as a limitation eg 2X-20X or you may need to update the Roxio software to run at the higher speed. Also make sure Roxio is set to burn at maximum speed.
the cdr is designed for 48x my cd writer writes at 40x. cant see why my write speeds are so low. the cdr brand is memorex (which aint bad!). although it has peaked at 20x it is regularly below that speed. any more ideas??
Patr100 what is the download that i can get to burn at faster speeds??
If your buring from CD to CD (on the fly) you wont get full speed- it will normally write at half the speed of the CD reader (i.e. if you have a 40speed CD drive, it wont burn much faster than 20X). If you cache to the HD first it will probably write at 40X. If you cache it to the HD first it will write faster, and will avoid Burn Proof overworking, resulting in better quality.
I have had my CD-RW drive replaced under warranty for the second time. The engineer who called said he never writes greater than 16x and would recommend this as an absolute maximum to guarantee no errors etc.
