well, there are 2 things i could think of that.... might happen.
1. because you're trying to send data to the cd faster than it can write to it, it will probably turn the CD into a coaster about..... 99.985% of the time. or...
2. Could end up happening like the reason they say CD-RW drives can't really get much faster than they are now. which is the fact that the CD may not be meant for that kind of speed, could crack, and damage the CD-RW drive very badly.
highly doubt that #2 would happen, since the write speed is only the speed that the Drive/CD can Send/accept data, but #1 will most likely happen FAR too often.
P.S. the percentage for #1 is probably a major overexaggeration, but is still not worth all the coasters you'd probably get.
I find some things just need to be burned at slower speeds ... but its not like I am in a hurry set it to burn and do something else instead of sitting there watching that little bar go 1mm every so many seconds LOL
Like LeeJend says, you should be able to burn cd's reliably at the maximum speed nero permits. I've used 16x Traxdata which have burned without flaw at 40x and 24x strand which burn at 48x. I've never had my cds limited to a speed lower than their rating though!
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
