If I buy a 800mb/90min CDR and burn to that, do I need to have a CDRW drive that supports overburn? Or will it work anyway?
P.S. I have a hp 9100 series CD-Writer (8x4x32). I've checked the HP site, and can't find info on my Cd-Writer. I've looked at the documentation that came with my cd-writer, and it says nothing about 800mb CDRs.
Well - it appears, after looking here that you probably do need a burner capable of overburning. I would keep an eye on this page or search for one more updated to see if your drive shows up on it. I don't see your 9100 series on here yet and I doubt you'll see it now that I look again as the slowest drive on the list is 12x.
Zipperman, The problem is hdmk's last post on these forums was on 05-24-2003, today is 6-13-2007. That over 4 years ago. While I don't expect you to have known or checked when his last post is, it is a bit perplexing how you dug up a post over 5 years old without realizing it. That is why Nodsu, Howard, halo, and myself have made the comments we did.
A lot of posters just vanish, the reason for this is simple. Someone has a problem and only joins Techspot to get help with it. Once they`ve got the solution they need, they tend not to come back again, until the next problem arises and in some cases they never come back.
BTW: You`re not the only one to post in an old thread. I did it myself when I first joined Techspot, until it was pointed out to me.
I do reply to some dated posts and wonder why this member got no replies
and very few reads.They may be watching their email.
But my big gripe is not to be notified that a problem was solved and how.
I join forums as a place of learning.
