  1. Try to Use Nero or Easy CD creator software for better output.....
  2. Try burning Verbatim 16x DVD+R at 16x first and then burn another of the same type at 8x. And then compare the results. Most times, burning 16x-rated DVD+R/-R media at 12x or 8x will result in fewer PIEs/PIFs.

Whether 1x is better than 8x is another issue. Personally, I prefer 8x speed for most media I use these days (rated at between 4x to 16x but mostly 8x.)

My pioneer cmx 3000 does not control speed correctly and produces draging audio out put

If your using burned CDs try burning them at lower speeds lower then 24x like 4x,8x,16x also try different brand disc. It's a common problem with poor quality discs and burn speeds higher then 24x

yes, you can write it in 1x or even 42x if you want. The only thing that can happen is a chance of data loss but not quality. Also some older stereos could run into issues not just cuase of the write speed but cd incompatibilitiy. Audio CDs are nothing more than WAV files written on a CD and then a table of contents added as a CDFS file system.

I have Mad Dog MD-16xDVD9-EXT. It says it can burn double layer dvd at 4X speed. I have dvds at 8X speed. How to burn at 8X speed with the existing burner? Need advice. Thanks

The bad news is most likely you will not be able to. If the specification for the device is a max 4x speed it most likely won't even be able to use the 8X media you have. You have to match the media to the device. All the specification data I find on the device indicates it writes double layer disk at max speed of 4X. It will write single layer disk at 8X.

Trying to make a cd in iTunes for my eclipse cd5444. Which CD write speed should I pick? iTunes defaults to maximum-and cd won't play. Should I pick a lower speed?

You must pick the speed that the CD allows. As long as you can play burnt cds in your car then any write speed will do. Try a cd in a different player if it doesn't work lowwer speed. If it does then your eclipse doesn't play burnt cd's. Also the format of Cd matters you might be burning an mp3 cd instead of a conventional cd and mp3 cds only work in players that support it.

Pc died

Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
Hope this helps.....
