Hello, i recently brought a sony 175e 24 write 10 rewrite, 40 Read. It happen to be errors when i burn 24x back to back, I found out info that the cd burner cannot burn back to back at full speed, e.g if i wanted to burn 4 cd i had to burn: 16x, 20x, 24x. 16x. IS that true? i have heard also people saying that you cant burn the full speed u should burn slower at e.g 20. But if i tried 20x back to back will they all fail?, i have alrdy tried all burning at 16x they dont seem to fail.

Can anyone give their views and tell me what should i do?
Thank you :-)

any CD burner faster than about 16x doesnt burn all the cd at its fastest setting.
due to the cd disk, its impossible to spin the cd fast enough when burning at the start of the media (inside of disk). so the drive will start at 16, then work its way up to the maximum speed somewhere between 1/3 and 2/3 of the way through the disk.

if your not overburning, and you have 24x certified media, there is no reason why you cant burn at 24x.
