    does a cd burner make a difference in sound or is it the software. ive got nero burning rom that came with my burner. its a 52x24x52x speed. i dont know the brand off hand but it was about 90/100$ i think. i didnt know if there were any "pro" burners out there that makes a difference? thanks a bunch! :D

    Neither burner nor software should make a meaningful difference in sound.

    all software and CD/DVD burners burn at the same quality just make sure to set your burner speed to the lowest 1, 2 or 4 speed is good. The lowest speed is better quality and also do not use your computer when burning an audio CD/DVD disc don't even touch your mouse, it might effect the burning process.

    I beg to differ, but this is seriously wrong. There are good burners, bad burners and exceptional burners.

    Of course for me, there is only one - The Plextor PlexWriter Premium.

    There's a tiny little bit more info (and warnings about what can happen with cheapo burners) here...

    Granted, a difference in the sound probably isn't going to happen. A difference in the error rate (which is paramount, IMHO) is another story.

    Thanks John. I was going to mention this stuff, but I didn't think it was called for here.

    Yes yes yes yes.

    Some writers are just not up to the job.

    Choice of media is also important. I tend to use HHB.
