Change Speed Mid-burn?

Hi all,

I have a rather odd request (I guess). I have a Lite-On LTR-52327S burner and it’s rather problematic. It has a lot of trouble burning a lead-in. I have spent countless hours trying to get it to stop having trouble with it, but to no avail. (I even took the thing apart and put it back together, my warranty is gone, anyway.)

Anyway, I’ve noticed that I can easily burn a cd if I set it to a low speed like 4x. However, I think that as soon as I get past the lead-in, I will be able to speed it up and get some more out of my burner.

So my question is, are there any programs that would let me do something like this?

the lead-in is always written @ low speed anyway.
then the drive gradually writes faster.
get a new drive.
