    There is no absolute number for the best speed to burn discs at. A similar question would be to ask what's the best speed to drive a car at. It depends on the car being driven (DVD burner) and road being travelled (media).

    It depends on your equipment and media.

    Ultimately, the best speed to burn at is that which produces the fewest PI and PIF errors. Once you complete a burn (a couple of discs will have to be potential guinea pigs) at a given speed, scan the disc with Nero CD-DVD Speed or DVDInfoPro for PI errors, it will give you a % for the quality of the disc. You're aiming for something above 90%. Just make a note of the quality % and the speed you burned the disc at.

    Once you do that for a couple of discs from the same batch, you'll confidently know what's a safe speed to burn those discs at.

    Hope that helps

    my advice is burn at the fastest speed you can, and do a 'verify after burning'. never had a problem. never understood people who say burn at 1x/2x speed. but whatever.

    It doesn't have to be Nero, I just used it as an example.

    Just use a program that scans the disc for PI/PIF errors and you'll have something to confirm your decision to burn at X speed.
