Some CDs don’t like slow speeds either so the optimum write speed maybe more in the middle, maybe try 4, 8 or 16x? I would also try a different CD brand if you’ve only been using Verbatim. Switching brands seems to have resolved it for some people. Also try burning one with less than the full 115 minutes as maybe it’s writing too close to the edge of the disk.

Here’s an alternative audio CD writer to try in case it’s an iTunes issue.

I would stay far away from RealPlayer. I has a reputation for being one of the worst pieces of freeware ever made.
