backup copies .. 4x vs 8x

why do some of my dvd players not want to play the 8x backup copy - but hey will play the same copy at a 4x recorded version? The recorder speed has not been adjusted - it is the Sony disc - 4x versus 8x - not sure if I can set a speed or what .....

Always burn with the lowest available speed. I haven't "upgraded" my Pioneer DVR-104 because with it I can burn with 1x. Plays much better on standalone DVD players than DVD's burned with newer 4x/8x burners.

I'd rather wait when the burning is done (it's a background process anyway so who cares) than watch pausing, skipping or unplayable movie. At 12x, or even at 4x there are way too many write errors for standalone players to handle. The slower the burn, the better the result.

I too have a 106 / a06, great drive; my favorite ever. Would only change to a a07/a08 if ever I do that.

I've made a lot of shrinked movies with my a06, and the sony dvd player I use loves em', I couldn't be happier.

For data backup, I usualy burn slow. Movies, fast.

I've never had any problems with mine. But most of the stuff I burn is Xbox games anyways

Data I burn fast, movies slow. Computer DVD drives can work around the burn errors but with standalone DVD players you will notice a degrade in picture quality if it is not burned right. Of course I am very picky with the PQ, I never even use compression because of that.

I just play my 4x (media limited) burned DVD's in my media computer, or my PS2 if I need to bring 'em somewhere else, and all is well
