    i just bought a 100 pack of memorex cd-r 52x 700mb 80 min. my burner's maximum speed is 40x. i put a cd in my burner and tried to burn using my normal nero 6 program, but i got a "disk speed error" right after or during the lead-in. i tried burning with cd-da, and it also failed. as well as WMP. i was planning on returning the disks, but i still dont understand why these discs dont work. im not doing anything differently, or so i think. SOMETIMES (twice) these discs have burned sucessfully, but none else. i try to burn both MP3 and WMA formats into an audio cd.

    any suggestions? help GREATLY appreciated

    Some discs simply don't work, not all discs are equal. Return them for a brand that you known works with the drive.

    You may also be able to update the firmware of the CD-RW drive from the manufacturer's drive - such issues are sometimes resolved by updates.
