    i have had this problem very often and was wondering if any of you have had the same problem/have come up wth a solution..

    basically i have a pbg4 with an external 8x firewire burner...

    i can burn files just perfectly with toast titanium in x, but whenever i use disc burner in the finder.. it takes an eternity to burn a cd..

    i jus tried to burn 10 MB on a disc and it took 15 minutes! toast takes a matter of seconds to burn 10MB.. (well.. about)

    this is really frustrating me as burning with toast isnt always the fastest solution.. its not that big of a deal.. but jus wonderin..

    btw -- i can burn cds fine with disc burner

    So long, and thanks for all the fish!
    Isn't there a control to set burn speed? There's one in iTunes, but I can't find one in the main OS. If there is, you might be set to 1x or something. If not, I'm not sure what to do (except maybe re-install X, and that's no fun)
