Well, I'm about to get a 40X/12X/48X Liteon. However, I still have a whole bunch of 2X/4X CD-RW discs. Will I be able to write on these discs with my new burner. Also, will I be able to attempt to write to them faster than they are rated?

CD-RW's ARE specially formatted, they are cheaper (and older) because they use chemicals that dont react to the laser as quickly (as newer ones), you will be able to write it in ur new drive, but it will only write at 4x or so.
You can write CD-R's quicker than usual if you have a VERY good (and error free) burner but It's not necessary.
Also bare in mind that a 40x writer writes a full cd in the same time as a 24x (it's not quicker unless you use multisession discs)
