Burn baby burn!

GCE-8520B, 99 minute CD-R anyone?

Postby oRBIT2002 on Mon Mar 24, 2003 9:55 am

Anyone managed to successfully burn 99 minutes CD-R on this awesome burner? I do manage to burn 99 minutes CD-R, but I can't read back the last couple of minutes.. Could this be fixed by a new firmware perhaps? Anyone got experiences with this?

Some site? Here's our review of the drive:

You can see that the drive stops reading at about the 93 minute mark.
