1X Recording Speed Doesn't Work

Question

When I set the recording speed to 1x, Toast 11 ignores that option and automatically defaults to the "best" speed.

Is there a way to set Toast 11 to record at 1x speed?

Thanks.

It is rare that any optical drive or disc media burns at 1x any more. The available drive speeds are shown in the Recorder Settings window after the blank disc is inserted and recognized. The drive's firmware evaluates what burn speeds it can support with a particular disc. Different brands of discs can have different burn-speed options in the same drive, and they can have different burn-speed options in some other drive. Apple's built-in superdrives usually offer fewer burn speed options than do external drives.

 

What Toast can do is show you the supported burn speeds determined by your drive and media. Select the speed you want after the disc is recognized. If you go to a disc media seller such as Meritline you can shop for media that supports low burn speeds. It still will be up to the drive's firmware whether it will burn at the slowest speed potentially supported by that media.
