[QUOTE=dakhaas;2010660]For write speeds it shouldn’t mater.
Turn smart burn of and it will burn at full speed.
Like said by the guys above cd-r atip seems to be not able to be overwritten.
Incase of DVD recordables it’s much more confusing thanks to a bug and weird behaviour of drives and software.
For write speeds it shouldn’t mater. You should be able to set smart burn of and burn at full speed.
But you will sacrifice quality or even have a possible failure during the burn.[/QUOTE]
You say full speed, what do you mean by that? I thought smartburn just slows down the drive to a speed that is lower than the disc’s rated speed. So if the disc is rated at 12 and you burn but it’s writing lots of errors, smartburn will slow it down until it stops writing so many errors. Now if I’m using a disc that is 4X, it’s not likely to slow down any further (and I’ve seen that it hasn’t). However what I would like to do is burn faster than its rated speed.
