Title:

What burning speed should I use on my MacBook?

Text:

Hi guys,

My laptop is a MacBook (13-inch, Mid 2009) with a MATSHITA DVD-R UJ867A driver.

My question is this: What burning speed should I use to burn THE BEST music quality onto my CD-R discs? I use iTunes to burn my discs.

When I go to "About this Mac" on my laptop, and go under "System Report" and select disc burning, it says "Media:    To show the available burn speeds, insert a disc and choose File > Refresh Information"

I then proceed to insert my blank 52x speed CD-R disc. I hit "Refresh system information."

The available speed(s) of 8x, 24x show up on my Macbook.

So, I'm assuming, and correct me if I'm wrong, my Macbook driver is able to burn to this specific CD-R disc at either an 8x or 24x speed.

Which one should I burn my music disc at? 8x or 24x speed? Many people online say burning at a lower speed creates less problems, but some say burning at higher speeds for a 52x disc is better for the music.

My question is, how do I know which speed is best??

Thanks in advance for your help.
