I see this in other forums(ex.doom9.org & others), and I’m wondering if there is any truth to this. Are discs burned at 2.4X “more compatible” than discs burned at faster speeds?
Or is it just that other burners PIE and PIF’s go off the chart on burns over 2.4X? Because now you are seeing scans from 12X and 16X burns that are better than scans at 2.4X burns from older burners, but you still see people posting statements like…[i]“and of course since it was my favorite movie, I let it burn overnight at 2.4X”.[/i]
I know there are many variables involved with a burn, so maybe this is true. But for simplicity, let’s say a user has a BenQ 1620 and is using TY02 or MCC004 media. Would a 4X burn be more compatible than a 8,12,or 16X burn? I find myself burning “important” stuff at 8X, but I think it’s more out of habit than anything.
Just curious what all you CDFreaks have to say about this, and maybe IF this isn’t true anymore, someone will read this thread and their life will be changed.(from all the time they save )
