Default Safe to overburn to 100minutes on 80minute disk? [LiteOn; 48246S; winXP]

sponsored links

I was just wondering if it is safe to overburn to 100mins using an 80min disk? I've used Nero's CDSpeed overburn feature to simulate writing 99:57.37 minutes of data on a cd and it said that recording stopped without any errors. Does this mean that I can overburn safely to 100minutes without damage to my writer?

Not quite sure what you mean, there's no such thing as 99 minutes of data. There's no way you could burn 99 minutes of audio on an 80 min CD. Data is measured in bytes (Mb).

1 minute of data is about 8.24mb. If there's no way to burn 99mins audio on an 80min cd do you think that the Nero CDSpeed tool is wrong?

The data track simply isn't big enough to do that. At most a disc can be overburned by a couple of minutes. What do you mean about Nero CDSpeed?.

An 80 minute CDR will hold 80 minutes of audio OR 700meg of data, the two can't be compared as they are stored in different formats. For ease of identification most discs capacity is generally referred to by their audio storage capacity rather than saying both the audio and data capacity.
a '99 minute' cdr holds about 875meg, there's no way to burn 875 meg to a 700meg cdr.

There are a few brands of '90 minute' and '99 minute' CDRs around but few burners will write to the end of the disc. Also some CDROMs have difficulty reading them.

Ok makes sense, but: when using Nero data mode1 and mode2 is referred to by time when burning an image or viewing a cd info.

And here's what I did in CDSpeed. (it's located one directory above your Nero installation path in a folder called Nero Toolkit (I'm running Put a blank CD-R in your recorder and launch CDSpeed (it is a diagnostic type tool). Click on Extra and then Overburning Test....I managed to simulate 99:57.37 data/audio on a 80min CD-R without any problems, but I haven't tried an actual write for this amount of time.

at one point I had a link as to which burners could overburn and by
how much... cant find it... anyways I believe liteon's can overburn to 99min.
the thing is, I find it very unlikely that the 80min media you have can
overburn that much. when i've done it on my plextor, nero usually tells
me I can squeak 2 or 3 minutes extra. with overburning, you do so at
your own risk.
