From Steven Taylor.

Ok here goes and do not trust my information to be 100 percent accurate.

Firstly,  the maximum burn speed should not usually be a problem for any errors.

Second, your question about the number of files per disk will depend on the 
size of the actual files sizes you are attempting to burn to the disk.

Let me give you an example.

I bought the lord of the rings on mp3 disk.

This took 3 disks to actually burn but my Mac burner was so good, it let me 
know just how much was burnt and what was left to burn to disk.

Note.  I bought this from audible.com and once I downloaded it to the Mac burnt 
it to disk, no problems.

Third, glad to hear you bought a cleaning kit and rewritable disks you  must 
remember to protect them once you have written the burnt files to the disks, 
note, you need to mark the files as protected, don't remember how it's done for 
windows users, but can give you tips for Mac users using Mac 10.6.3 os.
