74 min vs 80 min CD-Rs

  jezzialli 21:31 14 Sep 2003

Can someone tell me if there is any difference, other than the storage capacity, of 650mb 74 min and 700mb 80 min CD-Rs? For example, do the higher storage CD-Rs only run on certain computers? Otherwise, why sell the smaller capacity ones at all?

Thanks for any help!

Its all done to size. Nothing else as the actress once said to the Bishop..

"Otherwise, why sell the smaller capacity ones at all?"

Probably because 2 short years ago 74min CDRs were the standard and virtually the only size you could get- then along came 80min ones to take over that mantle. I imagine they'll fade away as stocks are sold off.
