    Write speed?

    Which is better for a more accurate burn?
    2.4x
    or
    8x

    Which is better? The 2.4x are more expensive, but which would you recommend?
    Cheers

    I'm guessing xbox backups yes?

    2.4x infinitely better, burning at 8x will give you disc read errors

    yeah its 2.4 and stick to the vibritum (spelt wrong) discs there one of the best

    p.s. if you would like the website i obtain my backups from drop me a pm if your want to

    Generally speaking everyone is right above if they said 2.4x, however that is not accurate with every drive and media combo.

    Verbatim MKM-001-00 Made In Singapore has always been the best Dual Layer media to use and @2.4x even though you can overspeed them to 8x

    Recent Samsung writers though like the 203b and even more recent ones actually make a better job at 4x On Quality Verbatim MKM-001-00 MIS and can actually even fail to write and render the disc useless @ 2.4x

    Get hold of a drive like the benq1640/1650/55 (old and hard to find)

    Or one of the new iHAS 320/420 or iHAP 322 which can do quality scanning with Jitter (Jitter is important)

    Anyways use either Dvdinfopro or Cdspeed or Nerodiscspeed and enable jitter and do some Pi/Po scans and look at rating for PI / PIF and POF when you have done lots of comparisons from 2.x and 4x 6x or even 8x using same media and drive combo then you can then decide which is the best option for the media you are using in any given drive.

    When looking at graph Red is terrible / Orange is bad / Yellow is not so good nearly acceptable/ Green is good

    PI below 20,000 is good / PIF below 1,000 good / 1 POF from disc scan, scan again in another drive if the same BIN IT

    Incidentally, a lot of people have had success with 'Aone' dual layer discs (me included). At about 1/3 the price of Verbs they may be worth a shot. Verbs ARE the most reliable though.

    Possibly a bit deep this for someone who needed to ask about the best write speed? (No offence intended OP :thumbsup:).
