Question on burning Shenmue II (English) on 99min CD

Postby Wong Chai » Wed Jul 26, 2017 3:49 pm

I'm wondering if all external DVD/CD burners are 99min compatible and will burn a file onto a 99min CD?
Or is it just some that are compatible and some aren't?
And thus the saga… Begins…

I can tell you firsthand that some are not. I even bought one specifically for that purpose, only to waste about 5 or 6 discs and realize that it couldn't burn past about 92 minutes. It was especially irritating since it claimed to support 99 minute overburn.

This is the one I'm referring to - https://www.amazon.com/Optiarc-Burner-Drive-Overburn-5280S-CB-PLUS/dp/B0086ZU8XK
Of course, you wouldn't want that one anyway since it's listed at $75 for some reason (I believe I got it for 30).

I ended up trying with my ASUS burner that I'd gotten in 2011 for about $20, and it's worked every time. If you want, I'll see if I can find the model number, but it may not be sold anymore.
