    Smile How to change CD/DVD write speed

    I have old hardware which was able to write DVDs at 1x back in hardy.

    In lucid now, I dont get speed of less than 4x.

    For me 16x CD write speed is okay.

    Tested k3b, xfburn, and brasero. But all start at 4x.

    How can I do it?

    Thanks in advance......

    Hi itmic

    The question was:

    I get lowest writing speed of 4x for DVD.

    How do I change it down to 1x?

    Why would you want to go from 4x burning speed to 1x? As it is, I'm more than happy to have my 8x blank DVDs burn at 3.3x.

    Hi Dale61

    The matter is simple.

    My dvd can write from 1x to 8x.

    On reverse it can read easily till 1x and 2x.

    On higher rates I get read problems.

    Re: How to change CD/DVD write speed

    I completely understand the reasoning, but to burn at 1x means you would burn a 90 min DVD in 90 mins! As I said, I use 8x blanks, but the auto burn comes up at 3.3x and I don't get a burn error.

    I would have thought you could set your burn speed from within the program you are using.

    Hi Dale

    Actually it takes me around 30 min to burn a dvd at 1x. Its not an issue.

    I put it to burn and perform other tasks meanwhile.

    But how can I get 1x write speed in ub104?

    Should I report this as a bug?
