I have Windows XP SP2 and I just installed the latest version of Foobar2000 (v 1.1.5) and the "official" burninate CD Writer plugin.

At first it didn't work but I downloaded the imapi2 update and now it's burning ok. The only problem is that I cant find any way to control the write speed. Does anyone have any tips for doing this.

Thanks. smile.gif

There is an interface in IMAPI v2 to set the recording speed, but the component does not use it. Mainly because only a vocal minority see a point to recording at slower than the maximum speed supported by the media or drive.

Some placebo crap about warm fuzzies and less jitter from recording at the slowest possible speed supported by the drive. Reminds me of those people who think that cutting vinyl at half speed according to a signal which is also slowed down to half speed will improve the sonic response of the resulting record.

Of course, I also remember reading stories about weird and likely crappy audio CD players failing to recognize CDs recorded at speeds faster than 2x.

(Hurr, I haven't recorded a CD at slower than 6x since back when I plugged a CD recorder into a computer that only supported PIO and was CPU limited to writing at 4x.)
