Hi,

My CD burner has an upper limit speed of up to 40.0X. However, when I burn a CD, it only achieves a speed of 5.0X or 6.0X. It has never reached its greatest speed. What could the problem and how do I solve it?

Thanks for your help.

Akbar, dear,

Everything is fine, you are just confused. 40.0X is not the burning speed, it is the reading speed of the CD, while 5X and 6X are burning/writing speeds. If a CD started burning at 40X, it would break as the maximum burning speed is 20X. 

Thanks.

Greetings,
 
First of all thank you for selecting our site for your query here is your answer. First of all your CD burner is absolutely fine no need to panic, just relax plus here is what I can guide you.
 
There is an optimum speed on which a CD or DVD should be burned for data safety and optimum quality which is described below:

A higher writing speed results in a faster disk burn but the optical quality may be lower (i.e. The disk is less reflective). If the reflectivity is too low for the disk to be read accurately, some parts may be skipped or it may result in unwanted audio artifacts such as squeaking and clicking sounds. For optimal results, it is suggested that a disk be burnt at its rated speed.
 
So the computer and the CD burner achieve the rated speed to ensure best quality and efficiency of your data.
