    Hey, im on a computer, getting ready to reformat it, but im burning everything to disk first. The comp has no documentation as to how fast the cd burner is, and it doesnt say how fast it is on the drive....

    is there a way to figure it out so i know what speed to burn at?

    If you're concerned about not burning coasters, try it a 4x. It will throttle down to what it requires anyway, but the slower you burn, the less chance you have of a coaster.

    when ur bios detects it, it usually says a model number. from that search google.

    Fine - burn at the fastest possible choice - as I said before, it will throttle down to what it's capable of anyway
