In 2002 you could still get cdr's that were 1 or 2X speed. Your laptop will burn to 48X and 52X cdr's but only at the speed the burner states (eg at 4X) (the acer at 48X if thats what it is) 1x was the origonal speed of cd burners.
I am a bit confused. I just want to burn CDs (Recordable). What does 4X means? And what does 52X mean? Why the burning speed (e.g. 4X) is different that the writing speed (e.g. 52X)? What CD specification should I order?
