i was just wondering before i waste any DVD's
The slower the better I think.
I have burned several games at 4x, never had a bad burn.
And use IMGBurn
I burn mine at 4x on good quality dvd+r media. these are bitset to dvd-rom and I dont ever get any problems
Another thread regarding burning, i'm sure this is the most re-posted thread on gbatemp.
On a modern burner (anything made in the past 3yrs or so) around the rated speed.
A 16x disc should be burned at 8-16x depending on the quality of disc and quality of burner.
On a TY or Verbatim MCC disc with a pioneer burner 8x or 12x will give excellent results. On lesser discs (ritek, cmc etc) then it is best to burn at around 8x.
Ritek G05 Ice, are superb like, i only use them, for Iso's, data dvds etc, never ever had problems, only ever burn at 8x speed.
..... and the most mis-informed topic as well.
On the original loader burn speeds were suggested to be slowert for best results.
On the new loader it seems that you should use the max burn speed of the disc or up to what your brive can handle , so leave the burn on max
Whats more important is the discs themselves - cheao discs dont work well and give disc errors ,
DVD-R are more reliable than DVD+R in general and no messing about with anything in the burner options..
In short for beta 03. loader - use DVD-r , burn at max. and look this up before posting about something thats already been discussed
True, the only issues with burning are for backup loaders, unable to read properly, which is Expected.
G05 are some of the worst discs made in the past 10years.
They were well regarded at first (they were very compatible with lots of older drives that had trouble reading other discs) but once the signs of degradation started showing people realised just how bad they are.
G04 were fantastic budget discs (although they started to degrade too, just not as fast as the g05s), the G05s are awful.
Even before people saw the degradation issues in G05s they were still only regarded a 2nd class media - http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm
Oh well iv'e used these for years, I'm not saying they're the best, they're the most reliable for me
I have been using memorex dvd-r disc ad have burnt all game at either 8x or 16x with no issues
i use verbatim dvd-r, with imgburn, and i burn all my games with 16x, never had a single coaster, and im also doing other pc stuff while burning whether its watching stuff on media player, or surfing the web with multiple tabs open, the wii doesnt like anything beign burned slower than 6x, it damages the laser over time
I use Verbatim -R and burn at 16x with ImgBurn, no problems.
36+ game burns all at 16x with imageburn, not one coaster. about a 50/50 split between 1:1 and decrypted
Various media ranging from hp to memorex to verbatim.
