When burning to dvd is the picture quality the same whether you use USB or firewire? Im looking into an external writer for my laptop.
I doubt there would be any visual difference. If you have a choice, I would reccommend firewire. It seems some people have had trouble with the usb 2.0 interface (failed burns, errors, etc.)
The only thing affected is the amount of data that can be sent along the wire at any one time.
Having FireWire or USB to shouldn’t make any difference what so ever as they both have very high data capacities.
Other than that everything that is sent done the wire is in th eform of 1s and 0s and so dosn’t affect picture quality unless of course you get a bad burn. But then the entire disc would more than likely be broken.
