    Burning speed doesn't affect anything but the time you use up burning a disc.
    The data will be the same.
    I always verify my discs after I burn them, and so far I haven't had any problems when burning DVD-Rs and DVD+DLs at max speed.

    so gamecube games don't need to be burned at a slower speed, 4x will work?

    Always burn at the lowest speed your media AND drive support.
    So if your drive only support 4x as the lowest one, use it.
    Problem solved mate, all backups should be running fine.

    There's no limit.
    It's a myth that burning at lower speeds will make a better write.
    If your drive isn't messed up, you should burn the exact same data at 1x as you would at 22x.

    alright, thanks for the fast responses [​IMG]


    edit: also how do i edit the wiki to put a game that doesn't work on the list.
    i see they finally put zoids battle legends on non-working...zoids Vs III has the same problem of getting the main menu and any choice gives error.
