Info RE CDRW discs
I have an Aopen 1232 CDRW which is 32x12x10 speed. I have purchased several cdrw discs cheaply which appear to work at only 4x speed, although the Aopen disc that came with the drive works at 10x speed. What I am hoping you can tell me is :
1. How the drive sets the speed it writes cdrw discs at?
2. Is there any way to write the discs which apear to be work at only 4x speed at 10x?
3. Why do cdrw drives have different speeds for cdr discs and cdrw discs?
Something to clear up, do you mean you have a 12x write, 10x rewrite and 32x read?
1) The CD-RW can only write at a max speed. In your case, its either at 12x or 10x speed. So once you got your max speed, the cd-rws you buy will determine what speed it writes at. If you have a 4x cd-rw, then it can only wriyte at 4x, even though your cd-rw can write at 12x.
3) If your talking about how it is 12/10/32. The first number tells you how fast it can write on a blank cd. The second number is how fast it can write over a written part of a cd. Sicne the cd has been written on, and you want to say replace a file, its going to take extra time to remove the file.
I hope im right.
Right on, Dude. I learnt something there myself.
If you want to record onto CD-RW discs at 10X, you need to purchase special discs. I really haven't seen 10X certified discs at retails stores, only 4X, which is rather stupid because that leaves them selling a product that forces customers shop somewhere else to purchase the replenishables that it uses. I found some at CDW. These ones are TDK discs.
You can also do an "exact phrase" search at HotBot using the phrase High Speed CD-RW Media.
Or do the search at PriceGrabber.
Best of luck to ya.
