How to Change the Burn Speed on Your Macbook


Changing your MacBook's optical drive writing speed (ComboDrive or SuperDrive) is usually unnecessary, but choosing a slower write speed can be helpful if you experience frequent write-failures in applications like the Finder, iTunes or iDVD. Two other important factors to consider with write-failures are the quality and condition of the writable media, and whether you are keeping the MacBook still enough while burning. Consider making an appointment with an Apple Certified Professional if burn problems persist after lowering the burn speed, checking the media and ensuring the MacBook's stability.

  • Insert writable media, such as a CD-R or DVD-R, and prepare a burn folder of desired documents.

  • Click "Burn" button inside Finder window, or go to the File menu and select "Burn."

  • Select the "Burn Speed" drop down list and select desired available speed.

  • Name disk and proceed by clicking Burn button.

Change the Mac OS X iTunes Burn Speed

  • Compile playlist and click 'Burn Disk' button.

  • Click "Preferred Speed" drop-down list and select desired speed. ('Maximum Possible' is selected by default.)
