A second is still not a second

Question

As I burn a CD-R for an audio CD, as the timer counts down a second is not a second. It starts out burning at 9x and one second on the count-down timer is much more than a second. Then at some point the write speed increases to 17x and then the timer seems right.

 

This is a MacBook Pro Core Duo 17" not Core 2 Duo.

This is the nature of disc burners. They burn at a slower speed when near the center of the disc (where burning begins) and speed up as they get to the outer edge of the disc.

 

Toast assumes a count down based on fixed speed and the drive burns at multiple speeds. That's just the way it is.
