I use to burn 12x media at 16x did not have problem. Just try a few cd to see if it works. | Report abuse Arrow September 27, 2001 5:42:38 AM I agree, trying it would be your best bet. Often media can burn at higher than its rated speed without problems.

Check them out, they'll have a list of what media can burn at what speeds. Most media can go a decent amount over their rated speeds.
