    Slysoft offers a couple different speeds at which to burn...is it true that the lowest speed (1X) is the best speed to burn a DVD or CD on? and why??? What are the benefits over maximum speed? and / or is there that much difference? I use High Quality printable 16X Memorex DVD's, my burner burns up to a speed of (16X) and has NEVER had a problem burning at that speed....but I was curious as to the quality being more clear or sharp if burnt slower like (1X) I heard from amatuers like myself ,that the sound (BASS/High Ends) were not nearly as clear....and picture wasnt as sharp. Is this true...if that makes sence to anyone.....(help)
    Thanks for your time guyz.

    In general a slower burn is just a more accurate burn.
    That said, when using good quality 16x disks, I burn at 8x or 6x depending on the machine. I have one DVD player that's picky... if I know I'm burning for THAT player , I go 4x to be "extra-sure". (I never use 1x or 2x - I'm not THAT patiant) :)

    The speed at which you can burn depends on your media & your burner. Try burning at highest speed possible & try it out. If it skips or dont play right slow it down. My burner works fine at fastest speed 16X on one & 18x on other. Hope this helps.

    It wont make any difference on clear or sharp as to the speed of burning. The main thing is if it plays OK.

    No. Burning too slowly is just as stupid as burning too fast

    junk

    Use Taiyo Yuden Premium or Verbatim (but I would avoid those made in India)


    Do not create multiple threads about the exact same issue.
