Default burning bounce on cd: 1 or 2 semitones lower?? [SOLVED]

Today I burnt a song on cd. The bounce is perfect, but on cd the song is one or two semitones lower than the bounce..

I checked this on different cd players. Same problem.

Maybe the Apple super drive is spinning too fast while burning?

I don't mind buying a new cd burner, but is this Apple super drive a good choice? I wonder. Untill now it did the job, but it's just 1,5 years old and I burn just 1 or 2 songs a month.

It sounds like your Protools session was recorded in 48.0 KHz whereas normal CDs and CD players playback at 44.1KHz. Usually people just create a new session at 44.1 KHz and import the audio to the new session and bounce again to 44.1 KHz.

no, it doesn't work that way
I'll concurred that the one song is most likely recorder at something other than 44.1 and you burned it w/o using SRC to bring it down to 44.1
