I use Windows Media Player 10 for burning CDs, however I used to be able to put the speed at 52x or higher, but now when i set the speed to 52x or higher, my computer just stuck there with weird sounds and I would have to force reboot and set the speed down to 16x in order to burn CDs.

I have no idea why the problem is?

can anyone help?

this only happened a few months ago.

Is the media (CD) you are burning to capable of being burned at those speeds? Even if your hardware can burn at that speed, it doesn't help if your media is incompatible.

the funny thing is I always use the same blank CDs, which I used to be able to burn them at the speed 52x or higher, isn't that strange?

How old is the CD drive you're trying to burn to? Hardware does run out, sometime faster than you would expect. Depending on how often you use the drive (both reading and writing) it could burn out relatively quickly. My last DVD-RW drive burned out in less than 2 years. It's possible that the drive could jsut be getting old.

I wouldn't go out and buy one just bacuase of what I said. Find a second PC (on of your own or a friends maybe) and hook their drive up to your computer. If that one starts giving the same problems, it's probably not the drive. If a second one works fine, then getting a new drive wouldn't hurt.
