Default Re: Dvd4x Versus 8x

What is the difference in time? Do they take about the same amount of time to burn?

If so, your DVD burner may not be able to write 8x. Or sometimes DVD burners are finnicky about discs. Sometimes 8x discs will burn at 4x.

Talking Re: Dvd4x Versus 8x

The size of the Movie makes a differance!
Not all movies are the same size.

Not all media is marked with burn speed, maybe ya got em mixed.



Any media should be able to burn at the rated speed, but as suggested the burner needs to support the same speeds as the media, and then your need to set the burn speed correctly.

Default Re: Dvd4x Versus 8x

the dvd that have 4x on them are dvd+rw and te 8x are just dvd-r, maybe that is the difference. that are all the same time movies, they are cartoons, and a set. i wont tell name, i dont think riht that i copy them but i bought for my grandson and he has already messed a few up. so this time i am making backup for them to watch not the originals, it my grandsons and my baby cousins. thanks to all that helped, i will just have to take some time to do it.
