Hi,

I have recently bought a case of 100 qty 16x DVD-R for video storage and viewing.

I've recently noticed that the tech specs on my Macbook Pro says it can only read and write a maximum of 8x.

Does that mean my Macbook pro will not be able to burn my videos on the DVDs and watch them?

Sorry if this is a silly question >_>;

Thanks a lot!
QUOTE Thanks

Your burning speed is limited to the speed at which your drive can burn, regardless of the speed that the media is capable of. So, if it says 8x is the limit, then it will only burn at 8x, even if the media supports 16x.

Read speeds are rated differently and will usually vary from the speed rating for writes.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
