View Full Version : Ever had a problem with a full 80 min. CD-R?

Even though all the CD-Rs I buy are 80 min. (I think they ALL are now), I've never burned much beyond 74 minutes at a time. I read somewhere once that some CD players can have problems reading CD-Rs over 74 minutes, since that was initially the CD industry "upper-limit". I've been a little cautious ever since.

For those of you who burn extra-long CDs -- have you ever had a problem playing it? Maybe this only happens on really old CD players, and isn't an issue anymore.

And when you burn, do you really push your CD-Rs to the 80 minute limit?

I've only burned one cd past 74 mins, and that was because it was a "study" cd with a bunch of ambient tracks that average 10 minutes per track. I think it went up to 79 mins, and I haven't had any problems whatsoever.

I've burned a few cds (on a stand-alone component, not on a pc) with about 78 minutes worth of music and no problems yet.

I've even overburned (Using Nero) a few minutes OVER 80 and had no problems. Same goes for goign over 700 MB. I've had no problems.

Really??? I use Nero at home and if I go over 700 MB it gets this terrible crunch sound at every second. It gets progressively worse as the cd goes as well. That's really strange...

It depends on the media you use. Some CDs can be burnt more than others.

Maybe I'll just do a few and see what happens.

Though I'm afraid that they'll play fine, but a year or two from now I'll have reason to play one on another CD player and it won't work.

You can burn safely up to the limit of the cdr with all current cdr/w's. I believe that there may have been incompatibilities with older drives but that's been ironed out lately.

With overburning it depends on the particular cdr in question. Some have enough space on the ATIP to burn 704-709 mb's "safely" although personally I wouldn't bother. It's been said that overburning "could" cause problems with the drive reading the innermost track because there may be data where the drive thinks there shoudn't be - which may cause problems although I haven't seen anything in a long time.
