Do you feel the your computer takes a long time to write data on to a DVD? You might have tried burning data at max speed only to find that it causes disk errors. Well, your burner should not have any problem in burning data to the disc at maximum speed provided your computer is fast enough.
If you have purchased good quality DVDs from a reliable source, then you should take a look at the number of processes that you are operating when you are burning data to the disc. If you are accessing the web using a web browser software application and have opened many tabs in the same when burning data to the DVD, chances are disc damage will be very high. Why?
All burners make use of data buffer process where the data to be written to the disc is stored in buffer and supplied at a steady speed. This is important because the process of burning must operate at a specific steady speed once it has been started. You have the option of determining this speed in advance but cannot change the speed midway.
Just imagine the burning process as one similar to the process of filling gas into your car. The nozzle simply regulates the flow of gas in the right direction. The nozzle will work only when there is enough gas in storage.
In the same way, adequate data should be present in the buffer at all times. If this is not done, the lens will burn empty data into the disc and this will lead to disc errors. The simplest option will be to prevent other programs from running when you are burning data to the DVD.
