@_shorty : do you get sharp speed changes burning 24x ? 2002-06-10 11:50:21 QuoteOriginally posted by _Shorty well, my 24x burner changes speeds 3 times during a burn if I burn at 24x. 16x at the start, then 20x, and then 24x, and you can see with your eye where these changes occur because of the drastic colour differences_Shorty, what burner do you have ? I've got a new Yamaha CRW3200 24x partial CAV, and I was afraid of this for audio burning (the speed change). I couldn't see anything on my burned CDR because it has a black coating (HiSpace Carbon), but I was pleased to hear that there was no sudden speed change during the 24 x burning : according to the sound, it spins full speed for a while, then it slows down progressively until the end of the CD, while at 16x, it progressively slows down during all the burning. Can you hear how your burner spins ?
