Where to buy 100 minute blank cd-r's?

I've tried the usual outlets on line, amazon, best buy, cc, and a few others but have had no luck. They seem to be a specialiaty. Does anyone know where I could find some?

Also, does the extra space lessen the quality?

Thanks in advance

The longest playing I've seen are 90 minutes...

I would be concerned about that density affecting quality.

Here's some 100 minute media...

Since CD is a digital medium, it shouldn't make any difference in the sound quality since it's just 0s and 1s.

I wouldn't want to use them to archive data or any other valuable information, though. I could also see certain drives/players having issues with them.

I don't know, but it takes longer to rewind them.

I've looked online for 90 minute CD-Rs before. But apparently they are not compatible with a lot of burners. Since I have no way of knowing whether they would work or not in my optical drive, I decided to just not get them.

Re: Where to buy 100 minute blank cd-r's?

I have a question though, if I can "overburn" reg CD-R's in my drives & they play fine on my set-top CD/DVD player, would these also work just fine as well? For, on that site in England w/the 100 Min. CD-R's, the info for it says to "overburn" the CD-R's to utilize all 100 Mins. So, am I correct to presume that these would also work in my same drive w/the prog I use which supports "overburn" & clearly my drive does too? Or could there be some weird issue where there'd be some diff.? I didn't see either of my drives in the compatibility list for the 90 min. ones, but there was no such list for the 100 min ones so,....I'd just not wanna buy them & have it not work & have to ship all the way back across the pond from the USA is all, not to mention have them refuse to refund my $ on top of it all!
Please tell me, whoever here's actually had some experience w/this on here that is. Or at the very least know someone personally who has in the same scenario. TIA!

Not only does rewinding take longer, but rewinding is also very stressful on your CD/DVD player.

I would suggest purchasing a dedicated CD/DVD rewinder:

Re: Where to buy 100 minute blank cd-r's?

Wikipedia states that the two capacities over 80min are 90min and 99min. It also says that these need to be "overburned" to burn properly:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cd-r#Ph...haracteristics
There are also 90 minute/790 MiB and 99 minute/870 MiB discs, although they are less common (and violate the Orange Book standard)....

Also, due to the limitations of the data structures in the ATIP (see below), 90 and 99 minute blanks will identify as 80 minute ones and have to be burned using "overburn" options in the CD recording software.
Searching for 99min CD-Rs brings some hits:

Personally, I'd probably just split any audio over 80 minutes onto two regular CD-Rs rather than use these exotic disc capacities. If it's data, then I'd use a DVD-R instead.
