Some people (I can't rmember who they are) believe that burning at slower speeds improves the quality of the final product. But I agree with you, I don't see how burning at a slower speed would improve the quality of the final product. My question was aimed at being able to locate the speed control for my burner so that I could burn at a speed I chose, instead of allowing Nero to make that choice, which is what happens at the moment. e.g. when I choose the Make Movie function, I can't seem to find a setting that informs me of the write speed or how to make adjustments to the write speed.
