    I don't think there is much of a difference between 1x and 2x. 4x and 8x is where you start getting some errors though.

    not necessarily, I've heard people saying their backups only work at 4x. I burned paper mario at 4x and no dre's. haven't tested any other games yet cuz I just installed my viper a few days ago.

    Nero is smart and will only let you burn at a speed that wont hurt your discs, check what speed the disc is rated to...

    Quezacotl, if you have nero, you can see what type of discs you have by clicking on the disc info button.

    the same way I said. if you don't have nero you can download a free trial. i'm sure there's other programs that'll do it, but i don't know what.

    No, Doesn't tell me what type of disk it is, just how much space it has.

    it's the damndest thing, I don't remember now how I did it in nero cuz you're right, just pressing disc info doesn't do it.

    download DvdInfo. google it. there's a free version, but it has ads but it's not adware; the ads are built in to the program. it's not spyware.
