Drive or Software for burning Audio CD's at 8X or below? 2017-08-18 13:35:47 Hi there,I have a (Hi-Fi) CD player that is fussy about the quality of the audio CD's it will play without skipping, stalling etc. Regular, purchased music CD's play fine, just burnt CD-R's. The manual says they should be 8X or below. I've just bought an LG GE24NU40, because in the specs on the website it listed 4x, 8x and 16x, etc as supported write speeds for CD-Rs. Now I've tried it and it seems just the same as any other drive (I've now ended up with three) in that around 14-16x is as slow as it goes even if I select 8x. I've got some special CD-Rs that are designed for slow speed burning, but it's the same.What does everybody else do? Should I try looking for a really old external CD drive? Find some special software (I can't find any)?Is there any sites where you can tweak the firmware somehow?I know I could just listen to the music from my computer but it doesn't sound as good, plus I don't want my computer on all the time whirring away when I'm listening to music.
