Overburn Benq 1640?

If talking video, you'd never be able to pick the difference visually between the two anyway - it's just not worth the risk to muck around with overburning IMHO. In most cases, you'd be either doing no compression and fitting a DVD-5 without overburn, or compressing anyway to fit the overburnt DVD-5, thus you wouldn't be saving having to compress at all. B)

Many DVD discs tend to be of crappy quality at the outer edges of discs. By this I mean the quality of the burn on the outer edges of discs tends to be worse than the rest of the disc. If you have a BenQ 1640 and have used Qscan, you will know what I mean. By overburning, you are actually trying to cram more data into the part of the disc which is of the worst quality!

 

Secondly, discs tend to die from the outer edges inwards. You're looking for trouble if you try and put your precious data there.

 

Many people dilberately avoid burning a full disc for these two reasons. They leave about 100Mb free at the ends of discs.

 

Take it from a person who used to overburn CDs and lost quite a bit of data on them - it is not worth it.
