I am burning mixes of classical music CD's using Nero Express 5, and I am getting distortion on the final CD in the high end/louder parts of music. This happens non with standing of what CD player I listen to the burn in. It appears as if it may be recording too loudly. Does anyone have any answers as to what may be causing this / what I can do to fix it? Thanks.

I don't know exactly how you are sourcing the music to compile your Cd's but I had a similar problem a while ago and found the sound was being recorded through the Stereo Mix option in Windows Volume Settings. The fault was in the software I was using but I was advised to use Audacity a free sound editor and although I was still using the Stereo Mix option (via Audacity) I was able to control the volume etc and thus obtained perfect results. It's worth a try, download here.

Not that much. I still see a definite improvement when I record audio CD's at 4x or 8x vs higher speeds.

That seems odd. Do you have an explanation? Read errors shouldn't be a problem, I wouldn't think; doesn't the drive checksum or parity check or some such on read?

Check some of the links I posted, they explain it much better than I can. :)
