Cd-r 90 And Cd-r 100 In New Is?

Recommended Posts

I've just noticed that you can now buy CD-R's at up to 100 minutes!

This would be very useful for me as my music collection on mp3 comes to 6.5 normal 80 mins CD-R's, so I need 7 CD's for my collection. Obviously there are only 6 CD slots in the new IS. If I could use larger disks it would fit on 6 :winky:

Has anybody tried these in the new IS? I know you need to confirm your CD-recorder will do overburn etc to actually make the disks, but assuming it does will the disks work on the IS?

Cheers,

I've managed to sort this one out, so if anyone is interested:-

You can play overburnt CD's in the new IS, up to 878Mb per disk. It wouldn't play tracks above this figure, but up to around 878Mb is OK. There is no loss in quality.

This compares to the standard 80 minute 700mb disks, so you get over 1Gb of extra mp3 space across your 6 CD-changer.

To get this to work you need to buy some 99 minute 900Mb CD-R's.

You also need a CD-burner capable of overburning. Most are nowadays.

You also need CD-burning software that allows you to overburn, ie Nero 5,6,7.

You then need to configure Nero as per here Click me

There is some other useful info here, look in support:- Click me

Hope this helps somebody, it did me :winky:

FYI, Some drives, even though they support overburning, will overburn better than others.

I have a Sony DVD re-writer and a brand new Lite-on DVD re-writer. The Sony one will burn right up to 900+mb per disk, but it seems the Lite-on will only burn up to 800Mb. So the Lite-on is being returned...

The lexus stereo will only read up to 878Mb on a disk.

Also, if you do "disk info" in Nero, ignore what it says about the capacity of the disk. If the CD-R is a 900Mb one, it may still show 703Mb. Mine do, but work up to 900Mb.
