DVD burn on 4x read on 16X

Question: If I burn files on old dvd 4x burner using 16x media,will a new 16x dvd reader/dw spin and read the dvd that was burn on 4x as 16x?

First off welcome to the forums stardustmaui

In a word B[/B] it will read it up to the 16x speed of your drive even if it was written at 2x
just as long as the burned disc is readable to start with that is. :iagree:

yes, it will, as long as the drive supports that read speed. i often burn at 4x (even though my burner supports much higher speeds) just to get a better quality output. 4x burns read at normal rates.
