I know it matters for audio and video discs, but does it matter which speed you burn at for data? I'm using an external drive thru firewire.

You may notice in the burning app you're using, that listed speeds may appear differently, ie. some are greyed out. That usually relates to the type of burning you're doing.

Data is usually safe at 32x with Mac, maybe 48x. Personally, I don't try anything above 32.

Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
