You nice folks helped me find DeepBurn when MusicMatch JukeBox Plus failed time after time. Thanks. Now please, a happy follow-up.

When MMJB "allowed" me to burn (which was like maybe every-other February 30th!), it only worked at very low burn speeds, like 2X or maybe 4X, anything higher got an instant error message. Now with DeepBurn, I'm seemingly burning CD's at warp-speed (to me) of 40X. My question is: Is there any qualitative difference when burning at higher speeds? Said differently, if I'm not in a hurry (and I'm not), should I back-off the speed to maybe 10X to give me "better" CD's? It's important, because I'm primarily doing this for backups. Thanks for listening.

Technically there is no difference in usage when read from the same drive that burned it. The problem is primarily when you put the media that does not read up to that speed. Most players more then 3 years old can access 99.9% of all CDs though.

I would be more then happy to research specific models, if you like :thumbsup:

JEservices: Thanks for rapid response. Just to be sure I understand your advice, I am OK burning at as fast a rate as my system allows providing that my intent is only to have backup CD's for use on this computer in case I stupidly lose songs, photos, etc., or to use for someday transferring stuff to a new computer?
