The Outer Limit: CD-Rs with 80, 90 and 99 Minutes

Creating A 90-minute CD, Step-By-Step, Continued

For the successful creation of oversized audio CDs it is important that the CD burner support the overburn function to begin with. The corresponding menu can be displayed in NERO 5.5. In addition, you need a suitable blank CD that can store at least 80 minutes.

The "Expert Functions " menu contains the overburn function, which is deactivated by default. The NERO 5.5 burner software can record blank CDs with a maximum of 99 minutes and 59 seconds.

There is no point in reading an empty CD. Only the CD register data, allotted 79 minutes and 57 seconds by the manufacturer, are read. Nevertheless, the blank CD can handle much more audio or PC data.
