OK the question that follows is:
how are the error rates on UltraSpeed (Verbatim DataLifePlus) CDRWs burnt at 10x (or 12x) as compared with HighSpeed CDRWs burnt at the same speed?
I actually put all the information you wanted in that post:
- Ultraspeed RW @10x: C1 max/ave = 18 / 2
- Intenso/NanYa Highspeed @12x C1 max/ave = 70 /1.2
I'll relink to the scan of NanYa RW (CD Doctor) I referred to:
So after the initial spike, it's better (for example) than any CMC CDR's that I've had.
Incidentally, what you have to watch for is not necessarily a speed rating
on the drive, but a note on the rewriting mode
. A drive that isn't designed for Ultraspeeds can't write them, even at lower speeds. The Verbatim URW's aren't recogized by my colleague's Artec which does the NanYa's fine at 12x. I'm almost certain that my LTR 48246S won't be able to handle the 32x URW+, although I'm prepared to try this explicitly once I find them.
