was doing some research in HWZ, and 'hearsay' that USB2 could only support up till 8x writing speed, so no point getting a burner more than 8x speed...is this true??

Cheers........

only japan have 6x dvd+rw disc..here in sg the dvd-rw disc is at most 4x..so if u mainly burn dvdrw then it shouldnt matter that much ;)

but if u mainly burn dvd+-r and care about write speed..then u may like to choose other brand that can go to higher speed.

then i am not sure as well. cos i mainly use dvdrw so have been used to 4x all along. but the usb speed limit is news to me as well. got to research more..

internal writer max speed is about 16x. so that means external writer is also max out at 16x. if the external usb 2.0 8x bottle neck really exists..then from 8x to 16x..u will have to decide if the speed diff really matters for u :)

in fact even when i burn cdrw, i still stick to 4x so as to minimise chances of write error..slow but safe hehe!

That used to be the case last time, before BURN-PROOF technology was introduced.

It is worried that if the CDRW if burning at a high speed and is "held up" by the data coming in, It will result in a Buffer UNDER-RUN error.

But now, with the BURN (Buffer Under RuN) Proof technology improving. Burning CDRW at high speeds 24x and above are pretty safe.

I used to get "coasters" with my 1st CDRW drive at 8x (a SONY) but with the Plextor 12x with BURN-PROOF (my 2nd drive) and later drives, the problem hardly re-occur.
