Unable to push Sony Optiarc AD-7585H to write at 1x


You're not "pushing" with 1x speed, that's the slowest speed at which a burner will burn at. You can change the write speed in the burning software settings.

I cannot write to a CD-R at speed slower than ~8x


It should be 100% reliable at 8X if you use Verfy at the end of the burn. If that does not work for you because you have a special application that only accepts CDs burned at 1X, then you might have to buy an old PC with an old CD burner in it, then keep that equipment around to support your application.

I installed the new cd/dvd driver, but the compter won't install it.


If this is the only drive on your PC you have to make sure that you have set up the jumper to master. the jumper is located in the back of the drive. you must also install the driver for the drive to work properly.
