Verbatim is driving down the amount of time needed to record CD-Rs.

With the release of DatasLifePlus, Verbatim offers 52x discs that can record 80 minutes of music, 700 megs of data or 30 minutes of video in two minutes or less, the company says. The discs work with slower CD drives as well.

Verbatim also says it has improved the quality of recording and reduced the number of errors associated with high-speed recording.
