So if I have verbatim 16x -R media and I burn it 8x or 4x does it have any effect on quality? I only have this one drive so I can't test this myself.
For me quality is THE most important factor. I don't mind burning even at 1x if there is significant increase in burning quality.
I'm sorry if this question has been asked and answered, but try to search using words "speed" and "quality" and see if you can find anything...
