Burning photo cd's

When you go to select your write speed ( 4x,8x,16x ) when burning a cd, does it matter which speed you go??? LIke does 4x do a better job recording ALL info? 4 x is SO slow that I really don't want to burn all cd's that way.

Help would be appreciated! Thanks guys!

  Write speed should have no effect on the accuracy of the burn.

Most CD writing software like Nero, etc., will sense the recommended speed of your CD media, and adjust the max available speed accordingly. I always record at the max speed available and rarely ever have a problem.
