Burn speed/blank media

#1

when purchasing blank media and I always burn at 2x or 4x, (capable of 16x) should I really only be concerned with purchasing a 8X burn blank media? i’m in no hurry to burn and I’ve been told to go slow, as to get the best quality outcome.
thank you.

If you are using low quality media always burn at half the rated speed of the blanks, if you are using good quality media like Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden then you can birn at the rated speed.
Burning to slow can and will be more problematic then burning to fast

Oh, I see. Did not realize slow is not good. Darn. Uh, I posted another question on the site recently, I may as well ask you sir…who is a reputable online seller of the TY brand, as not to get fakes? I don’t need it made of gold :), just good recording quality. Looking for -R media.
Thank you again.

Have a look in this sticky thread in our Blank Media forum:

[B]Did you know: Slow write speeds + modern drives + modern media = no good[/B]

Most of the time, burn speeds around 8x (6x, 8x, 12x) are the safest choices for burning 16x rated DVD media in a desktop DVD burner.

Burn speeds of 6x - 8x are ususally best for 8x rated DVD media burned in desktop DVD burners.

In laptop DVD burners the maximum speed (8x) is often too fast, and something like 4x is usually safer.
