BTW, Nero uses Linux as their CD rescue OS for repairing and recovering from damaged hdd which came with my WinXP version of Nero.

You should burn at the speed with the lowest error ratio - generally the slowest.
In the battle for speed manufacturers may have forgotten that what is burned also should be burned as error free as possible.
Any CD/DVD has thousands of errors and about a third of the disc is reserved for ECC. When/if the number of errors get too high all can't be repaired
This goes for factory made CD/DVD discs as well
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
