How to burn the perfect CD or DVD

If you want to be able to burn CD's and DVD's to best possible quality, there are three rules you must follow.*

*Plus 1, if you want your disks to be the best, of the best.

Rule 1
Buy some proper CD/DVD authoring software. I recommend Nero, as this lets you burn brilliant disks, and so much more.

Rule 2
Go slow. There is no point in rushing your burn as it won't be as good as a slower burn. 1, 200 KB/s is a good speed for CD's, and 1,385 KB/s is a good speed for DVD's.

Rule 3
Be patient. Don't fiddle whilst your disk is burning, as that uses up processing power that should be used to burn the disk.

If you want your disks to be the absolute best of the best, you need to get them burnt by a professional company.

I can highly recommend the company Discus Group. Their services are all of a very high standard, and include:

  • CD and DVD Authoring
  • Video Duplication
  • NTSC to PAL
  • PAL to NTSC
  • USB Flash Media
  • Web Hosting
