2X is not a 'very high speed' and is all we can do here.

Table of contents on a disk that was successfully burned?
Do I just try a second CD-ROM and forget the first one if nothing is on
it, or did I forget some step and nothing happened when I burned?

When I made the other copy I stopped it before the dummy mode started to
burn rather than wait 40 min for it to finish (at 2x burn speed).
Floppy disks are a lot easier to use, and reuse, until they go bad or the
drive goes bad.

Any speed blank will record at 2X in a 2X recorder. Why do I want to
chnage the fifo size from default 4MB to your suggested 6MB? Is this how
much it records at one time and is 6MB going to go faster?
