I am trying to use Windows DVD Maker to make a DVD video disc.

 

In DVD options, I see three values for DVD burner speed including: Fastest, Medium, Slow.

 

I have a DVD writer. Its maximum speed is 8x.

 

Which speed value in Windows DVD Maker should I choice for my DVD writer?

Hi, Windows DVD Maker at its fastest setting will only burn at the maximum speed the drive supports. In You laptop that should be 8X.

Some people think that they get a better burn at a lower speed, such as 4X. Most likely Medium speed in that software. Which speed You use will depend on the drive, the media and personal preferences.

 

To sum up the reason those speed choices are presented that way is because they are not tied to any set burning speed. Or to put it another way in a Laptop for example where the drive is a 8X, fastest speed will be 8X. In a desktop that has a 16X burner then the Fastest speed will be 16X.

 

I hope that helps

Roger

Thanks for your explanation. Completely, I agree with you, Roger. And my choice is the medium speed.
