    DVD decrypter will not let me burn at x1. My new TDK go2 says x1-x8 but it always reverts to x2. My old media optodisc also reverted to x2.

    My burner is an NEC ad2500, so I'm wondering if there is that big a tiem difference between x1 and x2. On average a game say bt 4gb takes 30-40 minutes at x2.

    4x = 15 min approx
    2x = 30 min approx
    1x = 60 min approx

    Is there any way to get my burner to write at x1? As my media says x1 - x8 but reverts to x2. An hour, hat would iron out some errors... I wish I could burn at x1 :(

    You mean the burner supports different right speeds for different Media? The media I use says x1-x8, so I guess I can't right at 1x with that media then :( . Not to worry, It's only made one bad burn that was Headhunter redemption but I burnt it again at the same speed and it worked like a charm. The ratchet and clank one I made where the sound skipped... another boot would have fixed that. But where can I find out the spec of my drive? I dnt have any documentation for it.

    EDIT: I mean write.
