Speed of DVD/CD Writer

  Border View 02 Sep 11

Can anyone please help me find out at what speed my new DVD/CD writer records at?

I run with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and in System Information it says the writer is a

TSST corp CDDVDW SH-222AB ATA device

Sorry if the answer is obvious but I dont know where to look - thank you.

Would appear not.

I have unoppened Memorex Recordable Media CD-R 700 MB 52X 80min CDs and don't know if these will work on my new computer which runs with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

Don't want to break the seal on this back of 100 CDs. If I can't use them I shall put them on e-bay. But in the meanwhile don't know what to do with them.

Hope this additional information helps those who are prepared to offer advice.

Thank you.

Its unlikely that your machine will write at a faster speed than 52x and discs will always write at a lower speed, which is preferable for accurate recording.

The computer will adjust the spped it writes to the Cd /DVD to ensure a good copy, so the write speed is not important.

Many thanks for responding. Seems I was coming at the question from the wrong direction. Will use the CDs with confidence now.
