Recommended Speed?

I noticed in the burn speed settings of, it defaults to “Recommended” speed. This option is not in What is the recommended speed based on and how is it determined? I ask because there are separate setting for Recommended and Max.

Thanx has speeds listed as 1X up, but warns you if you set speed faster than your media etc can handle. Most find 2X gives better burns, but you may find another speed that works with your system.


The recommended speed is returned by DVD drive, the DVD drive firmware program think it’s the safe speed. It may be the fatest speed, or slower.

Got it.

Thanx for the info.
