    A friend of mine is a professional in the music industry. In order to maintain the highest quality of her music CDs she likes to burn files at 1X speed (real time).

    She recently got a new computer with Win XP Pro, Sonic CD burner program, and also downloaded Real Player, and Media Player. No matter which one she uses they all burn at something like 24X or greater. Can’t really tell what the speed is as it doesn’t show up anywhere.

    Heard about a tweak and gave it a try: Open My Computer and right click the “E:” drive (burner drive). Then Properties and then the Burn tab. At the bottom of that window you can set the burn speed to 1X, but it has no effect on how fast the other programs burn the CDs.

    Any suggestions?

    Most modern CD drives will burn as slow as 4x or 8x, so I suspect this is a program limitation, not a drive limitation. I don't think you'll get any modern drive to burn at 1x, at least I haven't seen one that'll do it.
