You have to pre-select type of media in your burning program (CD or DVD) before adding files and commencing burning procedure.

What should the CD's recording speed be when buying a blank CD-R/CD-RW for an Acer Aspire 5750-6677?

Rewritable CD-RW / DVD-RW media typically have lower recording speed (4X - 12X is common) compare to CR-R / DVD-R (20X - 50X is common).
The quality of the CD/DVD media is the most important factor: buying a well known brand blank media is always advisable.
The higher the recording speed for a specific brand the higher the price: that said, a CD/DVD with a high recording speed rating can always be used at a lower (and usually more reliable) speed.
If you are not burning CD/DVD everyday, then a cheaper 'slower' media, especially at an attractive price point, is OK.
ps. Be aware that writable CD/DVD media are not always readable/compatible in other devices (e.g. external DVD or CD players) ... even well known brand media can fail compared to lesser brands.

Sony CD / DVD DRU-510A. Reads CD's and DVD's, burns CD's, but will not recognize blank DVD's. Sony support page states: 4X DVD-RW Media Compatibility Notice Please Note: 4X DVD-RW media is not...

Well a quick check here says it should manage 4 x DVD write speeds:-

The only thing I can think of is that lens may have some dust on it, try a CD lens cleaning disk or a blast of air from an aerosol spray can.

After this, I'm afraid its down a replacement.

Problems burning cd's using my memorex dvd multi recorder 16x

It can be CD-blank media problem. Try another brand or if you use CD-RW try to use CD+RW.
Also try to use simulation mode. If it works fine it can be CD-blank media problem.
Good Luck
