16x Media in 24x drive?

Hello, I just bought a 24x Light On (Model 24102B) Cd-rw, but, all I have is 16x rated media, what would happen if I tryed to use that media at a 24x recording speed? Would It work? What would happen?

  1. it probably won't work. www.cdrlabs.com tested differents types of media with that drive
  2. It might work. I use to burn 12x media at 16x did not have problem. Just try a few cd to see if it works.
  3. I agree, trying it would be your best bet. Often media can burn at higher than its rated speed without problems.

  4. CDRLabs is an awesome source for information on CD drives. 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.

    Who knew we would start overclocking CDs?
