This week, I picked up a few boxes of the Prodisc-manufactured Precision blank CD-Rs, and I bought the BUSlink 52X burner. I'm planning on installing this burner in an external USB 2.0 case.
Thanks to taxman150 for pointing out the additional 10-percent off coupons in Sports Illustrated
Now I need to go through a few more back issues of Sports Illustrated
before I throw 'em away.
Anyway, I've burned the Prodisc-made Precisions at 48X on my TDK VeloCD 4800B. Interestingly, there is only a one-second
difference in total burning time between 40X and 48X. The reason is that SMART-BURN kicks in on the 48X burn (at around 75 - 80%) and reduces the speed to 24X.
I used CD Doctor (kudos to cfitz for the English translation) to test the C1/C2 errors: Neither disc had C2 errors, and the one burned at 48X had a few more C1 errors than the one burned at 40X.
