Doesn't matter burrning speed. Generally a slower speed will equal less errors and a more successful burn. But CD/DVD's are cheap enough that I use the fastest I can and it works out 95+% of the time.

Speaking of making coasters, slower is better.

Agreed; particularly if you are going to using the disc in an older drive.

That goes for CDs, too.

Haha, well I always burn as fast as possible and I haven't gotten a coaster in a while. Maybe Asus drives + verbatum disks are a golden combo

To the OP (if your still checking) in truth the slower the speed the better the results. But as celegorm said, it seems that burning fast is causing less issues for me as well than it use to. I would guess that discs and drives are both getting better and therefore are equaling better results at faster burn rates - of course I have no data to back that up.

Perhaps the answer would be to burn at a speed somewhere in the middle.

Well, here's the deal-- the slower the rotational speed of the disc, the wider the data track will be burned in. For most readers, even the narrowest track is readable.

However, for older readers, and ones with dingy or dirty lenses, the narrower tracks can lead to read errors.

If you are like me and use your equipment for literally decades, then that old CD Walkman might not like to read a CD burned at 64x, but will read one done at 10x (because that's the slowest my burner will go).
