    Anybody have any experience with different speeds? 2x, 8x, 16x, etc....
    Or does it matter?

    Speed burn x4 is the most common. Usually slower speeds are better because it will most likely burn every little thing on the disc/whatever. Faster burns are for people with little patience. [​IMG]

    He probably wants to make a hardcopy backup of ROM files instead of re-downloading everything.

    I prefer a good Class 4 MicroSD card myself, but too each his own. It depends on what you're burning, for movies use 2.4x at the most that way the set top DVD player will recognize it. If you just want data storage or games, as fast as possible is best!!


    P.S. How are you gonna use DVD's on a DS [​IMG]?

    LOL, he may install a some custom DVD drive on his DS. If he does, hope he'll sell it to us GBAtemp users XD.

    It doesn't matter.
    I burn backups to disc too, don't want to buy bigger hard drives to store them.

    DVD's on a DS [​IMG] seems like a pretty dumb idea

    you could try to sell it. it's common here in the Philippine everytime you buy a DS with R4 and it'll bundled with a couple of DVD full of DS games.

    SRSLY, invest on external HDD and save your time. there are more DS games and 4.7 is hardly enough to store your games unless you only have few games, I can understand

    I always thought speeds were just the write speed or something

    They are. There can be some problems with some older burners when attempting to burn at too high a speed (read: a slightly greater burn-failure rate). But most new burners and burning programs simply slow down the burn to a reasonable level (higher than 2x, btw) automatically.

    To everyone laughing at him for burning it to a DVD, you're just a dumbass. DVD's aren't just for Wii games and movies. They're just as viable a storage solution as anything else, they just can't be overwritten (unless you've got a DVD RW). My friend burned all 6 episodes of Garth Marengie's Darkplace to a CD and it's a perfect solution (since CD's are cheaper, the files were in total under 700MB, and CD's are cheaper than DVD's).

    Anyway, for burning, it shouldn't matter really. My general rule of thumb is to burn at half the DVD's maximum speed (like burn a 16x DVD at 8x speed), but that's probably a load of horse dung. Burn it as fast as you can or want to, probably.

    Well past my own dumb comment. I used to burn copies of all my games to disks before I got flash drives. It keep room on my computer and was easier at the time.
