Post by E H. Walk » Fri, 07 Apr 1995 04:00:00



I have seen a few ad's in Computer Shopper that say they sell Double speed
Cdrom's that go 600kb/sec but I've also seen ad's from other companies say
their double speed Cdrom's are 300kb/sec...which one is it? And if 2X is
only 300 then isn't that false advertising??

False advertising, misprints, sloppy editing whatever.

Single = 150kb/sec
Double = 300kb/sec
Quad   = 600kb/sec

1. Newbie: Simulation error with 4x (600kb/sec) [NERO]

Hello, a newbie with CDRWs here.

I bought a HP 8200+ today and wanted to burn a AudioCD in Nero. The HP
supports 4/4/24, so in the BurnOptions-menu I changed the default detected
speed 1x (!?) to 4x. I pressed OK and thought it would burn and all would be
ok. But, the meter stopped at 2% for some time and then an error came up
saying: (translated from Dutch) "Simulation not succeeded with 4x".  W-why?
I bought a 4x CDRW! This shuld work,right?

Also, I tried it on a special audio-CDR of TDK, can this be a part of the
error?

Please help 'cause i wanna burn! ;)

Thanks ahead!
