Can't really say without more information. What program are you using to make the Audio CD? And are you making an Audio CD or MP3 CD?

If you are making an Audio CD to play on an audio CD player, burn the CD at the lowest burn speed your drive will burn at. Audio CD's burned at high speed can skip or even not play at all on older audio CD players. I have a recording studio and do a lot of audio CD burning. My burn speed is "8X".

I'm not clear on what you mean by "audio" CD.

You can make one type of "audio" CD that might hold 200 mp3s, limited only by the Megabytes capacity of the CD. The capacity is usually around 700 MB and MP3s are usually around 3 MB, so you could fit 200 mp3s on one CD. Such a disc is just a "data" disc, but can play mp3s on some playback equipment.

Or----

You might be trying to make another type of "audio" CD that is limited by running time in minutes--usually around 80 minutes. A typical song might last 3 minutes, so you probably can't get over 25 or 30 songs on a CD.

Which of those 2 things are you trying to do?

I think that's what Fireberd is driving at when he asked you "are you making an Audio CD or MP3 CD?"

I'd say it's highly unlikely that your Samsung external writer can't recognize Maxell CDRs. Possible, but quite unlikely.

It's much more likely a matter of your technique or settings.

I've made hundreds of music CDs, but I've never used Windows Media Player and have never used an external writer, so it's tough for me to say where you have gone wrong.

Jack (Fireberd) can most likely straighten you out. Wait for him.

Aha! MP3's. Burn speed is not an issue with MP3's, which are basically "data" CD's.

I agree it should recognize any brand, unless you just happen to have a batch of bad CD-R's. Have you tried a different brand of CD-R? That would be my next step.

For a free CD burning program, I like CDBurnerXP and/or
Imgburn. The CDBurnerXP sort of looks like the old Roxio interface.

Speed is set after the CD Blank is loaded in the drive. I don't use WMP or the other program you mention so I can't say how to set the speed in those.
