Using 900 Mb CDs

Posted on 2004-08-20
Last Modified: 2010-04-03
I have bought a pack of 900 Mb (100 minutes) CDs. How do I use them? How can I make Nero recognize them? Is there a place in Nero where I can set the properties of the drive or something?

Hi Lescha,
There is normally an option within Nero to 'permit overburning'. However some writers will only allow you to write up to 90 minutes regardless of the media so I suggest you do a test write first to see whether you can write to 90 or the full 100 minutes.

Hi Lescha,

You'll need to enable overburning in the advanced settings menu.

But first, you'll have to find out how much you can write with your writer:
Could be it's less than 100 minutes, so to prevent data corruption, check this first.
