What burning mode?

there is a mode 1 and a mode 2… the way I understand it mode2 is older. But I dont know which one to use. Is mode one supposed to be better? I mostly burn data files, and divx files:confused:

If you can burn mode 1, you’d better do that.

Mode 1 has an integrated error correction (every written sector has a set of parity data, giving drives a change to correct an error while reading).

DivX files can be burned as mode 1.

thanks, I never really understood how this parity files (or par files for regular computer archives) work:rolleyes:
