burning a 90 minute cd

  gingepaul 21:04 24 Nov 2003

hi all, i've just got a couple of 90 minute cd r's to burn a few audio mixes to, but my 1 week old lite on dvd writer only recognises it as 79 minutes.
do i need to update nero [version 6] or is it just my drive?

ps would i be able to flash my drive to get it to recognise 90 min discs?

All drives will only recognise these disks as 79 or 80 minutes in length as that is the largest size offically according to the standards. I have used 99min CDs. All u do is enable overburn and select Disc At Once (DAO) mode and thats it.

Bear in mind that these disks 90/99 mins are not offically supported and many audio cd players wont recognise them.

Longer than usual CDs place a strain on your CD Rewrite and are not recommended. We've all made the odd extra long disc but if you don't want to replace your hardware keep to standard lengths.
