It's a general issue with crappy CD writers (and in my experience anything older than 1 year is crappy, and even brand new, stock drives can be lemons.)

If there were a way to make 1/2 the maximum speed the default when burning an ISO, I think that would be good. 1/2 max really might be a good sane default in general, though for raw audio CDs full speed isn't really an issue. If people really want the extra speed they can turn it up, and it would definitely prevent a lot of wasted CDs.
