I used to burning 16x DVD at 16x speed. But I recently heard burning at 16x is not a good idea and it should be around 8x or 12x speed.

Is this really true?


And regardless the the burning speed if a disc is verified after burning does it mean it is a perfect burn? I always verify all my burned DVDs 


PS : The software I use is ImgBurn.

The speed you use is pretty much irrelevant if the optical drive you're using ends up creating a usable disc at the end.  If burns consistently fail at a higher speed then stepping down to a slower burn rate is the first thing to try.


If your burned media passes verification then the burn has worked and the content found on the optical media matches up with the source material burned to it.
