    So, modern Blu-Ray burners barely burn CDs at all, and mostly as an afterthought at high speeds. Needless to say, older systems like a SegaCD, Saturn, PS1 etc have a very hard time reading these disks even burned at the slowest (which is still far too fast) setting these newer drives let you.

    Is there still a maintained list or recommendations anywhere of a drive one can get that still does a decent job burning CDs and/or lets you burn them at a very low speed? Was there anything USB based that was even good, or would all of them be internal (which I assume means IDE, which would be hard to get even get working properly on a modern system).

    Get quality CD-Rs. Verbatim seem to always work for me.

    My CD-Rs are not the issue, I have good ones from Taiyo-Yuden before they were bought out by CMC, the burner is the issue. Most modern ones have very poor CD-R burning support.

    Are you sure its not something specifically wrong with your setup? I havent had a burner in my system for years, but when I did Im sure I used the max speed + Verbatim media without issue. It wasnt a bluray drive but I cant think of any reason why they would be any different.
