99min CD-R's, my great experience w/Audio & Data

Wanted to post some feedback on my experience with 99 minutes CD-R's. This site and board has provide me with great info and gave the push I needed to take the plung and try these out, and it's been a vary favorable experience.

The media: 100 pack 99min RiDATA, $52 at PC Club on sale. Info from CDR Media Identifier v1.63:

ATIP: 96m 43s 37f
Disc Manufacturer: Unknown Disc Identification Code
Reflective layer: Dye (Short strategy; e.g. Phthalocyanine)
Media type: CD-Recordable
Recording Speeds: min. unknown - max. unknown
nominal Capacity: 702.83MB (79m 59s 74f / LBA: 359849)

The drive: LG GCC-4120B 12x8x32x8 Combo drive.

The software: Nero Burning Rom 5.5.6.4

The results: Burned an audio cd with 98 minutes 10 seconds. Probably could do more, but have found any combination of albums I wanted on one cd that was longer. The burn gave an error on writing the lead out, but still functions perfectly on my 12 year old AIWA cd player. This cd player was made before cd-r's existed, and computers only had 1x cd-roms. I'm pretty impressed. The cd plays all the way through the entire cd.

Burned a data cd with 919,185,408 bytes, or 876 MB. That's somewhere around 99 1/2 minutes. The burn was flawless, and the lead out was completed without any problems. All data is readable on both the burner and another 5 year old cd-rom drive.

I have burned other audio and data cd's with similar results, though none with more audio or data than those above. As usual, some cd audio players have trouble with the cd's, but these are the same ones that have problems with any cd-r.

All in all I'm very happy, though $52 is still much more than the $20 I could spend on 100 80min cds. The biggest plus is the added amount of data for SVCD's and Divx CD's.

The of the spec's on my system follow, though they shouldn't matter.

MSI K7T266 Pro2R
Athalon XP 1600+ @ 1800+ via 146 FSB
256 CL 2.5 PC2100

I believe 99min CDR's have been around about a year now. CD Media world has a nice write up on them.

A follow-up to my original post.

I have burnt many cd's now, all without indicident. One note though. I have receive error upon writing the lead out, however this has NOT affected the cd as far as I can tell. The cd take a little extra time reading sometimes, but otherwise can ALL data. I have now gone to 99 min 47 sec without incident.

Also, all my burns have been at 12x speed.

well, while I love these things, I still wouldn't use it for any critical data backup or transfer. But besides that, all data verifies OK, and I've even had good success on my friend's car audio, which really suprised me. The only thing I've noticed is that sometimes I have difficulty accessing data past the 99min 0sec marker on stardard cd-roms, but on cdr drives it's fine. But then again, since these are "99 minutes" cdrs, I guess anything over 99min is over-over-burning?

I don't believe Easy CD Creator supports 99 minute cd'r, though it's been a year or two since I've used that software I'm not absolutely sure.

Arrow 99 min cd's

Isn't there a caution out there for this type of cd's and overburning that might damage some burners? I have read this on cdfreaks. I will try and find the link later and post it. Is this right?
