    As a novice at burning, i recently purchased some dvd-r media which when burning on nero burning would only write at a maximum speed of 1x. Have I been ripped off or am I missing something. we set nero to burn at max and it came up as 1x speed.

    Hi,

    Is your burner 4X capable? Cheap no-name media has been known to burn slower than it's supposedly rated for.
