Burn Speed

Does the speed you actually burn an iso affect the chances of a game working, or the load speeds?

Because, i've burnt Guardian Heroes and it loads _extremely_ slow between stages, and locks up after you loose the sword. Could the fact I burnt it at 16x be the problem?

I'm too impatient to wait for a CD to be burnt at 2x
it can, especially when you burn on shitty blanks. the faster you burn, the less readable it is. 4-8x is usually fine to use.
