Hope that the DVD gurus could help me settle these questions which I have searched wide and deep but could not find an answer. 1/ If a DVD-R is burned at 8x speed, will a stand- alone player play it back at 8x speed or slower? 2/ Will a stand-alone player wear out faster if it plays at faster speed? 3/ On a PC, sometimes you could clearly hear the DVD player rev'ed up to a very high speed, what happened? Is there anything I could do to prevent that? Many thanks. B.
