    Just to let u know for future reference that a good rule for burning speed is half what the top rated speed of the disks are.
    Thats with top notch media, if u dont use great media i would suggest burning at 4x.

    Good point 300bowler, but I have found that I actually get just as good, if not better, burns when burning at the rated speed of the media. That is of course using quality burners with current firmware and quality media. That is a good rule of thumb if the quality is suffering though.
