Has anyone used the new high capacity CDR's ? eg 80min.
How does your writer know if you put one of these in ?
Can they be played in any drive ?
How do they get the extra storage on the same size disc ?

yeah, i use them. they are great for sqeezing in that extra song when copying or making your own cd's. they play fine on my pc and stereo. the same goes for data storage - no problems. i don't know how they get the extra space - new technology i guess?!?!

i only use 80 min cd-r's now 'coz of the extra 50mb storage it holds.
your cd writer can only tell the computer if it is a 80min cd-r if the program does that
but other than that i suggest you use the 80min just to be safe
