Maybe that's because you used a wrong combination of media and drive !
Burn at 16x or no more than 24x.The ole rule of thumb,Multiply your burn speed by 2 and that's what your Rom should be reading at.If your burnin' at 40x your rom should be readin' at "80x" for best results if you copy on the fly.Don't know any Rom's that read at 80x except the one you have there readin at 91x!!!!!!If your burnin' at 24x your rom should be at 48x(more reasonable and do-able!!!!)If your rom drive supports up to 52x read speed,burn at no more than 24x for best results.Less chance for Buffer Underruns and errors.I haven't had any cd-r coasters in a long time at 16x and 24x.Give it a try.
No problem with high speeds unless your burning on the fly. Something which I never do ! Since I never had good experience with on the fly burning.
As the pictures show 40x is done with a image, that's why 40x won't be haveing extra problems except for higher jitter maybe.
Unless Rex used some terrible quality disc for testing purposes that is.
But if this is quality media then don't expect problems.
