I want to burn my music onto DVDs so that they can be stored safely for a long time. I’m burning them from original CDs.
First, what kind of DVD should I use? DL can hold more music on a single disk but I hear that they have more production defects than SL. I have a spindle of SL DVDs from Verbatim I think I might just use those. The DL verbatims are kind of expensive.
And how much does the quality of the burner affect the quality of the burn? Is it so great that you can actually hear it?
I have an ASUS DRW-1608P2, it has some problems with reading someCDs for long periods of time (about 1 hour) because then it starts to kind of skip and jitter. And when you touch the burner it’s kind of warm too. But when I rip them they sound perfectly fine. Is it good enough for a quality burn that you can’t hear the difference between the original and the copy?
And last, is a lower burn speed always better? I don’t really care about the time it takes, just the quality. So is always burning at 2x good for quality?
