View Full Version : LG CDRW 52x24x52

Recently I bought a new LG 52x24x52 CDRW, it does read and write fine but i just have a little concern about the writing speed (not that it matters, but just i would like to find out why it is like this), i usually write at 24x.

It says 52x write on the CDRW, but the thing is every time i burn something with Nero or CLone cd, it keeps changing the top speed, sometimes it says 32x or 40x or 48x and sometimes 52x, even though i never write at 52x.

Is this a problem or just something that doesn't really matter, the CDRW does work fine.

thanks for help!!!

52 speed is only the maximum it can do and this isn't sustained. If you write a full amount of data to a CDR, you will notice the speed change as it changes from the inner to the outer tracks.
It is also dependant on the speed and quality of your CDR's as well. I have 40x CDR and max I have seen it write is 38X.
Audio is naturally slower when writing, and data is faster.
