Ive got a 8x DVDR, but all the media ive used is 4x, so i havent tried it at 8x yet.

Im assuming my 16x LG DVD rom probably maxes out around 5x?

Hi Feedubber and welcome :slight_smile:

I find it a bit difficult to do a 8x on the fly recording but it is not impossible with a fast dvd reader, depending on the source.

The reading speed depends on the media used. Most DVD drives will start reading at around 6x for Single Layer media and around 4x for Dual Layer media. They max out at 16x and 9x respectively. But thats a generalisation and doesnt apply for all drives - plus the way the speed increases might be different and it is essential.

You can only find out if you try. You can use Nero CD DVD Speed for checking your drives speed, you can look here for an example:
