CD-Rs can be written in approximately nine minutes or less (based on 60-minutes or 545MB of data using CD-R media with a sustained data transfer rate of 1,200KB/second to the drive). It stores up to 650MB of data or over 74 minutes of CD audio on a single CD-R disk offering customers an ideal solution for archiving files, storing large databases or compiling MP3 files.
