Burning a DVD backup under Vista at 16x speed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm done with the beta 2 Vista, and want to back up to DVD.  Got a nice "ultra high speed" burner, but only 16x DVD-R (not RW) DVDs.

    Nowhere have I heard the question asked, how do I slow down the DVD write speed under Vista?  The complete PC backup is what I want to do, not just the files.  I use the backup utility in the control panel of the beta.  It works just fine for hard drives, but messes up badly with writing DVDs.  Note: I got the beta on DVDrom from microsoft bacause I couldn't burn anything but CDs on this old Dell.  So I bought a reader, installed (no problems, dude) and then the burner.  But it won't write right. help?
