Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Please,I would like to know about the difference between DVD of 8x and 16x and would it affect the recording? since this is the first time I bought it w/o reading the print.

The only difference is that the 16x will get the job done faster.

The playback speed will be exactly the same.

Hey, there's no way to give you the original serial number unless we can see it. There should be a barcode or label somewhere on the machine that has that. Sometimes its also on the bottom.

As far as the DVD Rom, it will fit any dvd, but the fastest it can write(burn) a DVD is 8x. You can use a 16x DVD just fine. The 16x on the DVD's just means thats the fastest a burner can write to that dvd. Some burners can write 16x, and others like yours burn at 8x.

Hope this helps.

You can use any kind of writable DVD the difference is that DVD-R, are more secure and data is better protected so you have a Combo or DVD+RW Drive 8X CD/DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive) that allows you to use a double layer DVD+ R or CD + R

Dear friend please see your DVD top side, is there mention that DVD able to record 16X speed ? If not then you can't record that on 16X speed. Thanks.

hi my name is wesley. ok well the difference between pci and agp cards is the agp graphics card is 8x & the pci is 16x witch is the difference in speed & pins so naturally the pci is much faster than agp cards because it is 16 bit it transfers the rate of a picture or game texture or any graphics twice as fast as agp is there anything else you would like to know?

- Try to Use Nero or Easy CD creator software for better output.....
- Try burning Verbatim 16x DVD+R at 16x first and then burn another of the same type at 8x. And then compare the results. Most times, burning 16x-rated DVD+R/-R media at 12x or 8x will result in fewer PIEs/PIFs.

Whether 1x is better than 8x is another issue. Personally, I prefer 8x speed for most media I use these days (rated at between 4x to 16x but mostly 8x.)

Can you send me the upgrade to 8X?
