Verifying Fast Optical Recording
If you're burning MP3 music CDs, you might not be so concerned if the recording works perfectly. In which case, setting your CD recorder to its maximum record setting is just fine.
However, if you must make sure that the disc was properly recorded, you should set the CD recording software to record and then verify the data you burn to the disc. Keep in mind that this setting significantly slows the total recording process--sometimes making the whole session twice as long. Thus, once again, even with a new fast recording drive, you won't always be walking away with a completed CD in just a couple of minutes.
