Thread: The slower the burn the better the quality...

    Default The slower the burn the better the quality...

    Quick question for the intellects out there...that's right build you up..so you'll reply..im not stuipt!

    Burning to disc..whether its dvd or bluray.

    Using Sony Vegas - I see that lowest seems to be x6 speed...although assume if i put in a dvd x4 - will work ok too? I was always lead to believe that you burn at the lowest speed possible ideally...x2 even..takes longer but more 'stable' on disc - if thats the correct expession to use.

    SO - Is it best to burn lowest speed.

    And finally, Im looking to purchase the best quality i can afford blank dvds ( and bluray ) discs...Im doing research on te' internet...just wondering anyone out there recommend a brilliant blank dvd to use ( ideally white - so that I can print to the disc ).

    Thoughts as always more than welcome and appreciated.

    I generally find a slower burn speed achieves more stable results in terms of disc failures.
    I buy all blank media from Carousel - and white blanks ideal for printing are on this page - DVD-R White Inkjet Printable Carouselmedia.com

    I think the technology has moved forward a lot since the days when this was such an issue. I burn DVDs at x16 and never had an issue with a bad disk burn. I have always used big branded DVDs like Sony, Panasonic, BUT I think I'm just paying extra money for the name. Which brand do you use Andy?

    We use Verbatim stock, Despite using the highest speed permitted we've never had a bad disk yet!

    Ok thanks all for the informative replies. I too have used Verb. discs as well as 'gold ones' ( cant recall what exactly..but cost twice as much ).. Overall...discs...were...ok - still the odd judder over time.

    If i'm spending a lengthy period making my 'masterpieces' money ( to a degree at least ) isnt an issue so spare me the tissue regards to cheaper the better. More than happy to pay slightly more for better. SO - any websites out there worth mentioning where i can get these discs..the white printable ones.

    And...coloured dvd covers..a reliable website to order a few of them / 2 and 3 cases. What I would love is to personalise my dvds - aka..Seinfeld..Curb Your Enthusasim style..the Yanks really like their dvd jackets..open them up..all nice and neat. Any service out there specialises in that - please let me know. ( Opens like a book - made of 'card' photos inside...just a neater..probably less durable..dvd jacket. )

    Years ago when I used to burn CDs and DVDs of music, I found that leaving the computer to run the burn without opening other programs made for more stable discs. I don't know much about the hardware side of things but it seemed to happen enough that I wondered if an increase in CPU usage interrupted what that optical drive was doing.
