Have windows 8.1 and a relatively new machine. With my first couple of CD downloads to Itunes, I was getting speeds somewhere in the range of 14X to 16X and so on. Now, when I try to load a CD in I get speeds of 1.8X and slower. Any thoughts on what could be causing the change in speed?

Age of the CD.

My CDs from the 1980s load much slower than CDs from the 2010's. They were created before the advent of multispin drives, so they can't be read at higher speeds.

Also, condition of the CDs also impacts it, as error correction is trying to "fix" the scratches in the disc.

What I did was start a load of a CD during commercial breaks, and got my collection loaded in a few weeks.
