Re: Burning direct from compressed files

I've heard that Nero is prone to introducing diginoise so I don't bother with it. I use EAC for all my audio burning, which is minimal, as it seems to be the choice of the trading community from the research I did about a year ago.

I also read an interesting article on burn speeds, which I'll have to see if I bookmarked to find a link, that said that the optimal burning speeds for both error free burning and longevity are 4x and 8x. There were tests done where they recreated the aging process and also looked at how deep the burn was and how accurate the data was and that's what they found. Any faster burning doesn't burn as deep and the slower burns actually produced lesser quality.

I generally burn audio at 4x and data at 8x unless it's on my DVD then I burn at 4x cuz that's my max.
