99 minutes of blanks
The 99 minute blanks, which have been announced by many manufacturers for a long time and then postponed again and again, are now available in stores for the first time. It must be noted, however, that not every burner can work with the new CDs.
Some requirements are that the burner can overburn CDs and also handle oversized CDs. The high storage capacity of the 99 minute CDs results from a combination of previous technologies. For example, the tracks on an 80-minute CD are put closer together and the tolerances are used to the utmost. The price is around 3 DM per CD.
