Ok, firstly, as you can see, I'm new here though I have been lurking on and off for a little while. So hello everyone, please take it easy on me :iagree: Also, I'm from Aus, so we're slighly behind the technical 8-ball so give me a moment to catch up
Now, with that out of the way, I just bought a BenQ 1620 Pro. Mainly to backup movies and data. So I'd be using +r's and the ROM feature. (even though I'm not sure how this works exactly. Do I select it in nero for example? Or does the firmware know to burn all my dvds as ROMs?)
Currently I've only burt 1 cd. It was to backup a .avi movie file. I burnt it at 40x and asked nero to check the file integrity when it was finished. Unforunately it said it wasn't exactly the same. I assumed this was normal for 40x and I should use something like 24x for stability? Thought I'd better double check here however
Basically I just want it to burn great quality backups, so for example, if getting a speedpatch or something would make it riskier to get these results I wouldn't bother. Is there any real difference between firmwares and how do I tell which one I'm using?
I always see graphs posted around here, I'm still not sure about them, are they just used to check the quality of the dvds we're burning? And everyone seems to always talk about Taiyo Yuden dvds, I presume I should hunt some down and use them?
Boy that was alot of questions, I know someone will probably tell me that I should have searched for the answers, and I have, anything that I've found doesn't talk about specifics or is too advanced for me to understand, so I'm sorry, but thanks for baring with me as I learn the ropes
