Ok this might be a stupid question but i am looking to buy either ritek 2.4x or 4x disc and i have dvdxcopy so i can make back ups copies of my dvds. Now my question is will the 2.4x burn the dvd at 2.4 speed or at 1x because on the ritek website it says 2.4 for data and 1x for video. Hopefully it will burn at 2.4. THanks

This is the link that shows the 1x speed

Hmmm, it does say that, but the link you provided was not the ritek website.
I have used ritek 2.4x in the past, and they did burn video at that speed. When the ritek 4x came out, it was announced that they would be discontinuing 2.4x, since 2.4x burners could use 4x media with the proper firmware installed.
Maybe things have changed. I would trust the 1x statement if it came from ritek themselves.

I have not used the 2.4's, but the G03's rated at 1x burn at 2x on my Pioneer A05 with firmware update noted in other threads here. I am also using the Ritek 4x media, but for me it only burns at 2x in both Xcopy and Xpress. It burns at 4x from Pinnacle Studio and Nero for my own video, but not when making DVD backups. I have had no problems with either media (no coasters) but at this point would stick with Ritek G03's if using for DVD backups.

Fast burn is good for data, bad for video. May not play in many players or may have skips or pixellation. Better to burn at 1x or 2x for consistent player compatability.
