Adjusting DVDFab's burn speeds can help solve problems with unsuccessful disc burning.

DVDFab can make copies of DVDs and Blu-ray discs, and includes a built-in burning utility. The program automatically selects a recommended speed for burning discs, but you may need to select a different speed manually if your discs do not burn correctly or do not work after you burn them. You can select different speeds for both DVD and Blu-ray discs, with options to select a specific speed, or to use the slowest or fastest speed supported by both your burner and disc.

1

Open DVDFab and click the green and white check mark button located at the top of the window. This opens the program's settings window.

2

Click the "Write" option under DVD/Blu-ray in the left pane.

3

Click the "Write Speed" drop-down list under the DVD section to change the burn speed for DVDs. The default value is "Recommended" and lets DVDFab choose the speeds automatically. Depending on your DVD burner's specifications, you can manually select a value ranging from 1x to 24x. You can also select "Fastest" or "Slowest" to use the fastest or slowest speed your burner supports.

4

Click the "Write Speed" drop-down list in the Blu-ray section if your computer has a Blu-ray burner. In addition to the "Recommended" setting, you can select a value ranging from 1x to 8x, or select "Fastest" or "Slowest."

5

Click "OK" at the bottom of the window to save your adjusted burn speeds.

Tip

  • check Your DVD or Blu-ray disc's maximum supported burn speed is the fastest speed you can use, even if your drive supports much higher speeds. Select "Fastest" if you want DVDFab to determine these values for you automatically.
