Need slow burn speed

Postby solar1951 on Wed Nov 12, 2008 1:52 pm

OK, here is a really stoopid question.
I like to burn iso,s at around 4x but K3b and nautilus wont allow me to change the speed from either "auto" or 12x or 16x.
How do I set the burn speed lower ?

I had to dump Brasero as it always crashed when converting mp3 files to wav to burn to audio CD. Tried all versions up to 0.82, current stable.
This is not really an option.

It may be your burner which is the problem.

I have a Lite-On; it ignores the burning speed I have set and insists on burning at least 14x.

I've tried it with five burning programs, three Linux and two XP ones. None of them will make it burn at the speed I want.

There is the occasional 'coaster' it produces, but any iso's I burn with it, will only play back on that drive and not on my CD/DVD read only drive. It's very noisy as well.

Thinking of getting a new, better behaved, burner!

The burner is fine Keith, and I could select burn speed with Brasero but see above why I dont want to re-install.
Actually the iso's I have burnt at 12X and 16X have worked OK, but I think that you should have the flexibility within k3b and nautilus burn - right click option on iso files - to choose a speed at which to burn, after all speed isn't everything unless you are Jeremy Clarkson !
Maybe I will try Brasero again if I upgrade from Elysia to Felicia and see if it works for converting mp3 to audio CD.

@ Jerry_N
Some people (like you) get lucky, but not all. The recommendation to burn slow is a general recommendation to avoid problems - perhaps a study of ECC and CD/DVD can clarify this a bit
