    24x Rewritable CD

    Where to get the 24x rewritable CD?

    I have a 52x24x52 CD-RW drive. But I could not find the media to match the 24x rewrite speed. I could find only the 10x rewrite speed CD.

    I have the same type CDRW and the fastest I could find was 12X. Good luck. I have seen 24X for sale on the Internet but can't or haven't seen it in stores. And by the way I heard some people complaining that Nero won't recognize 24X speed media.

    CD-R media and my Nero 5.5 only goes to 32x. My drive is a 52x24x52 (khypermedia), the media I am using is rated at 40x (AT&T) but I have also used Imation and a lot of Generic (read $1.99 or less for 50 or more CD-R) and I still only get up to 32x in burn speed. As for CD-RW, I am still using 1-4x Imation disks but I get about 8x out of them.

    Re: 24x Rewritable CD

    I did some research on my combo drive when I burned my first CD and users on the 'net recommended setting it no faster than 10x to avoid producing "coasters." I'm not sure whether this is a function of the drive, the media, or the software, or just superstition, but I'm generally not in a hurry when burning a CD.

    (Just as a footnote, I ended up buying CD-Rs — not CD-RWs — and the label says "up to 48x compatible." I guess the difference in composition makes CD-RWs a bit slower?)
