Is it possible to burn a cd with 24X and not get errors?

I bought a cd burner program...called Sonic Record Now Deluxe! and it works very nice with my old 24X Yamaha USB 2.0 cd burner which is two years old. I noticed when I tried burning at high mode...during the last songs on the disc it sounds with cracking noises. But everytime I burn at 8X I get a nice clean copy (takes 8 minutes). Is there a way to burn really fast without getting errors? I have Sonic Record Now! Version 6.5. Funny thing also I found out there is a version 7.2 and it has a finalize button.

Why don't you buy a 52x burner for $25 and burn at whatever speed you want?

Yeah that is what I am thinking of doing tomorrow. Shop for a brand new burner. I guess Im gonna have to go for another burning program also. I don't like the sonic record now program because it's so basic without solid features.

Are Lacie drives good? My eyes are looking at those.

Well it turned out that i did not want to purchase another drive today. I glanced them...but if there is one drive to own it would be a plextor and might as well be dvdrw (i got to have the best ) and well this two year old yamaha i currently own has never been given alot of use. I was successful burning today at its max which is 24X without errors after adding more buffer memory (9.5) in the sonic program. Worked like a charm! 5 minutes for a cdr copy is not bad at all.

It's usefull to keep a couple alternative cd burner programs for case if the main program refuses to burn or does it with errors.
Here is two wreeware cd burners:

Yeah, I currently burn at 52x with no problems. Of course, for stuff that is REALLY important, I tend to drop it down to 40 or so.

LG makes some great 52x burners.

The key is to get the good media so you don't have to worry as much about errors.

Thanks!

Doing extensive research I read that alot has to do with the media. I'm currently using a pack of sony cdr's (supremas). But it looks like verbatim cds are the favorites.

it also has to do with the resources on your machine.. if you are watching a movie while using MS Word on a machine with 64 MB of RAM, you aren't going to get 24x to burn... although i guess it will either burn or not burn

bad idea to burn at high speeds... I can never understand this - are you in such hurry? Music especially has all the chances to end up with pops and jumps... Why do people burn at such high speeds, if theycare about the content on the disc?

Hmmmm ... I can't recall ever having any burn issues or error issues (in the last 3 years). I never burn below 48x (or whatever is the maximum allowed by the burner). Yup, every CD is perfect. Audio or data.

Yup.

I do periodic backups to an external HD about once every 2 weeks. I also do periodic backups to CDs (2000-2003) or DVDs (2004) once a year. I always burn at max speeds allowed by the burner & media. The oldest backup CDs I have are from July 2000. Burned on an external CD writer at 24x (max for the writer). All 3 CDs still read fine.

Back in June 2000, all my data fit in 3 CDs. My latest backup in May 2004 required 9 DVDs.

Why do they make 52x burners then if you can't burn at 52x? I've heard the same thing you have like you are suppose to burn at 1x or 2x. Screw that. If the CD-R goes bad I'll just make another one.
