Hey. How do you guys burn dvds with dvd-rom folders?
Wud like to hear your methods.
nero burning rom

Are you being facetious boon or does this genuinely make a difference?

4 times is as fast as you should go.
Nero can be picky with DVD-Rom content, giving you an error saying it can't add said files/folders. Just make sure the exact titling of the folder is "DVD-Rom" (and not DVD-ROM, DVD_Rom, etc...) it truly does make ALL the difference in the world. Hope this helps. And yes, I too burn @ 2.4... slow as hell, but worth it.
Good to know!
My current dvd can only burn at 2x maximum, so I've had no problems.
This will change when I upgrade soon.
I disagree. There are many who say, depending on the specific media, if you burn the DVD below it's rated speed you can actually cause more errors.
It's a crap shoot really. A little slower can't hurt but don't go nuts. I'll usually just go one setting below the rated if I'm concerned about quality.
On the flip side, I bought some really dirt cheap JVCs I can't even burn at the rated speed on my NEC3540 drive (which is a pretty good drive). 100% failure at 16x. Took a bunch of coasters before I tried 12x.
Anyway, it wouldn't hurt to burn at a couple speeds and then test your media to see what speeds are optimal for that particular make and model disc.
Btw, there are also main that say Nero garbage.
Many prefer to use ImgBurn to create an .ISO imgae from the folders. You can then burn from there.
And always check the "Verify" box on either program to make sure it's readable on your own drive.

Well, the verdict is still out. Half say as slow as possible, and half say rated speed. I for one choose slower, but I guess it's all a matter of opinion. Do what ya want hehe. But if you use Nero, one thing is for sure, make sure you label that DVD-Rom folder right!
my dvd rom folders are always labeled DVD_ROM
always works, never get a coaster

Later: Corman's fantastic 4
same for me: DVD_ROM all the way, no problems.
