If you have Nero 6 there is a programme called toolkit which can check for you. Outsides of that......sorry

Speed of the DVD disks will only run at a speed that your writer can cope with. I.E if your DVD recorder is only a 4X then a 8X DVD disk will only run to a max of 4x. What is the speed of recorder??

If the recorder is 8x and its working on its own with no other application running apart from the burning software the factors you need to work into the equation is processor power, ram, and what your burning.
