Hello, I have burnt around 20 backups at 1x and they all are working fine. However, they take well around an hour to finish with the burning. I always use Verbatim 16X DVD-R media and I always burn at 1x because I have been told that that is the best speed for burning backups. My DVD burner is a MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-820S. It came integrated with my laptop and it only can burn up to 2.4x. However, when I insert the Verbatim media, I only get the option of 2x and 1x with Nero 7.5. My question is, depending of my circumstances, should I move up to 2x, and burn my backups at 2x? Or, should I stick with 1x and keep burning at that speed? Thanks.
