    Is 52 the read speed? and 32 the rewrite speed? and 52 the regular read speed? I had a buddy over last night that said the 32 only relates to cd/rw disks and has nothing to do with a cdr disk burn just lookin for a really good explanation of this I would really appreciate it.
    THanks Mr. Bill

    52x The speed it Burns to a CD. 32x the speed it Burns to a CDRW. 52x the speed it reads data from a CD.

    Hmmm I see what you mean! They appear to be rare as hell. None of the shops in the UK seem to sell them.
    32x CD/RW Burners are all over the place - but you only seem to get 24x CD/RW disks free with those. I haven't come across them.
