I have over a hundred [i]"back-ups"[/i] That i have played over a million times over a period of 3 years and the DC is still tickin' strong to this day (although I don't play it quite as much). I feed it every variety of media I can get my hands on. I even used some peice of crap 'three cent' unnamed brand that I found at a music store and they worked fine.

A lot of people will tell you that they (backups) are bad on the laser and over a period of time, the motor will die out. I kind of agree with them, but from my experiance, people worry too much about that stuff.

As far as speed is concerned, I always burned at 4x, but don't let that stop you from burning at a higher speed. Once again, I have had success burning at 12x, 20x and even one game at 32x.

Just like the guy mention above. I had it for several years now lol okay since it first came out Now and then I play it and I have over 300 + games. So I would just say that 1x is the proper speed to record and media like sony and pny black diamond is an excellent choice, but then again don't go to cheap on your machine will have a hard time reading the data from the dc backup game

As long as the meda is rated for it, burn it at your burners top speed.

Your burner is set to have the least amount of problems, and burn optimally at it's top speed. If you burn slowly (1x or 2x), you can develop problems (heat build up especially on cheaper media, etc.)

I own a 16x burner and have never had a problem, nor a need to burn at any other speed.
