90 min CD-R and BenQ DW1655 ?

Is this even possible? Sorry I haven't been here in a while, but I finally need to try and burn a 90 min CD-R. I have 86:55 minutes of music (all of new Tool) and my BenQ is still running, but I have a few questions:

1. Is this even possible with Nero 6? If not, then I can use whatever comes with Win 8.1 on my laptop.
2. Will the BenQ DW1655 do this? If not, then maybe my Pioneer DVD burner will.
3. What CD-R do I need to buy? I usually buy TY 80 min CD-Rs for music.

Thank you.

I had to go back and check some of my old data but the DW1655 should write up to 99 minutes. The problem here is probably the media. You can usually squeeze a little more data onto an 80 minute disc but another 6:55 is a bit much. The easiest way to solve this would be to use a 90 minute disc. Or just rip them to MP3.

Will the BenQ recognize the 90 min CD-R? What's the 90-min equivalent to what I usually get for 80 min CD-Rs?

It should. You may need to go into the software (like Nero) and increase the maximum allowable size. I believe the 90-min discs are also called 800MB discs.
