Do you know what is implied when the drive mentions, it can burn CDs at 52x and DVDs at 20x?
The ‘X’ refers to the rate at which the data is burnt to or read from the disc. In case of a CD, 1x translates into 150 KB per Second. This means when a CD spins at a speed of 1x, it can transfer 150 KB of data per Second. at 52x, a CD can theoretically transfer data at a rate of 7,800 KB per Second (52 x 150). Likewise, in the case of DVDs and Blue-Ray disks, 1x translates into 1,350 KB per Second and 4,500 KB per Second respectively.
