Kiok, Imgburn is just displaying what your burner is doing. Your discs are 6x,8x,12x and 16x burn speed. You have Imgburn set to 3x burn speed which your discs don't do, Imgburn is showing the speed that your burner has adjusted itself to. Best to reset everything to default and Imgburn will burn your discs at a proper speed that the media will handle. :) ( burn speed set at auto )

Im going to assume you want to burn at slow speeds because you've heard the old one about burning games as slowly as possible to get a good disc , well thats a myth .

Its quite safe to burn at 4x upwards with a decent PC .Yours appears to be a decent PC with 1gb ram, win xp SP2,decent burner, (unless your using a USB1 connection which cannot supply data fast enough to the burner , but yours looks like an internal burner anyway so you have no problems with dataflow) .


i wouldnt go above 8x myself, even if you have the capability of burning at 16x . burning at 8x is reliable .


Like chewy asked, what are you watching it on/with ( standalone player, PC with which software ,ect ect ??) to be able to say its "horrible playback" ?? I cant see its burn speed related as the following info is from your log

I 19:36:20 Average Write Rate: 7,779 KB/s (5.6x) - Maximum [/color]Write Rate: 8,529 KB/s (6.2x)

which is as slow as you can burn with that media and as mentioned earlier, it was a sucsessfull burn .


ImgBurn only burns what you give it, so what goes in = what comes out . unless whatever you played it back on doesnt like those discs, the only other thing is low quality in = low quality out. OR if you've eddited the original file in any way shape or form ( compressed it maybe) then a problem could lye within the edditing/alteration process of the file( what goes into IB is what comes out, all IB does is burn the Image its told to)


Your using +R media , have you tried -R media as well ?
