Some Burning Dilemmas

Question

I'm a bit new at Roxio software.This is in reference to Musiclab 10.I'm using Dell Inspiron 530 w/ Vista home premium.The whole setup is about 6 monthes old.I find that I get some distortion on some of(not all)the material that I download and then burn(all legal).I also found that a disk that ran 78 minutes would not play to the end in my stereo components.I thought this might have to do with burn speed, so I set the speed down to 16x.On trying again, Ifound that the program increased burn speed as the burn progressed;leading to the same result.I attempted it with a different program(Realplayer)successfully.So what gives,oh guru's.Why can't I adjust the burn speed.I suspect the distortion might be from maximizing volume,but am uncertain.I only used the copy cd function once,but this also had distortion on it.I'm using maxell "R" blanks,by the way.Thanks for any help.

The burn speed increasing as the burn time goes on is normal.

All cd's will do this.The burn speed shows slower at the beginning and faster toward the end of the disc.Has to do with physics (angular velocity I think).

 

When you set the burn speed that should be the maximum that will be attained but if you watch it may not approach that until toward the outside edge of the disc.

 

I'd try 2 things.First turn off the Maximize Volume.Second,try a different brand of blank disc.

Thanks tbrewst,I think you mean angular momentum,not velocity.Allow me to be even more specific.I have the burn speed set for 16x.I just re-burnt a disk now.The speed started at 21x and proceeded to increase as the burn progressed.By the time I (or it?)was done,the burn speed was reading at 42x(and whatever mb/sec).When I said the program ignored me,I was quite serious.As for the disks themselves being the problem,I would,in truth,consider it unlikely.Remember,I had said the initial problem was with very long playing disks(in excess of 50 minutes or so).The problem was that at highspeed burns stereo equipment wasn't playing the last 5+ minutes,or would just stop,as though I'd come to disk end(NOT freeze,stop).Also,when I did a burn with realplayer,I COULD slow the burn enough to get a playable disk(all the way through,with one exception,that being the Bose Wave in the bedroom,which I usually NEVER have trouble with.Another odd thing(or maybe not),when I copied an E.P. that ran 30 minutes the burn speed got no higher than 16x,but a 58 minute CD I copied 10 minutes later had the burn speed run up to 48x.I like the software in general though.
