not when you have to burn a 700MB CDR.
I meant funny as in "strange"
I also had a spindle of these, but I used them all. SmartBurn, Nero and Info-Tool say 48x on a used one. CD-Speed doesn't seem to report burning speeds.
SmartBurn does pretty well the same as Info-Tool: it queries the drive as to supported speed.
What does your drive say about newer media?
The newer DLPs have the same manufacturer's code but a nominal capacity of 79:59.73
not 74. These are rated at 48x or 52x and my SOHW-1213S@1653S purports to write them @48x.
But I also have a CD writing problem: it really
uses 32x PCAV when I pick 40x or 48x, as is does for all
newer CDs I've tried (TY, MCC, RiTEK). I don't think I'm alone with this problem, but I didn't get much feedback when I posted it here or at CDFreaks.
