A bud of mine tells me that if you burn a movie @ 8X the quality will not be as good as it would be if burnt at 2X. He also states that the majority of DVD players will not play movies burnt at 8X. Any help on this would be appeciated. TIA
Yes, No And Maybe.
Kind of depends on the media, drive and the player they will be played on.
I'll be using Memorex Rioch media with a BenQ 822a
I use a Sony/Liteon 8x drive and Ritek 4x media (burning at 8x though). I then test with XPROBE for Liteon and everything checks out great. Playback is flawless on my Sony Progressive Scan and my old Apex.
