Default burning dvds at higher speeds than 1x

sponsored links

I have a question.

When you burn dvds at a higher speed than 1x, does that affect
the dvd?
I mean, over in bst, I see some people request that their stuff
be burned at 1x.
Is there something wrong when burning at 2-4x?

Honestly I think most of that can be attributed to the writer. Most quality writers now have means for reducing the "wobble" produced while writing at higher speeds. Also it isn't uncommon for people to have issues with burning at 4x on cheap discs. For movies there really is no reason to have to burn at 1x. 2x is sufficient if you want to play it cautious. 4x can be a bit tricky but most who burn at 4x (at least for movies) have no problems. So in my opinion this comes down to people who are still holding on to what they have heard in the past.

I have been burning movies and ps2 games at 4x on RITEK media since I got my writer and have only ever had about 3 or 4 bad discs and they were my fault and nothing to do with the writer so I would say there is nothing wrong with writing at 4x

Yes, things become more unreliable at the faster speeds.

I always burn at 4 X and have never had a problem, even with X-Box and PS2.
As jester says .... as long as you are using quality media, you shouldn't have a problem.
