Default Win 7 beta question

Hi, I have downloaded win7 beta as an ISO file. It is about 2.5 GB in size. I am going to use imgburn to burn it to a DVD-R. I don't want to get errors and was wondering what speed you guys would recommend burning it at. I believe 1X being the fastest to 55X which is the slowest. What speed should I use. There are lots of options in between as well.

Also, with the speed you suggest, how long do you think it would take to do as well?

I would appreciate it if I could get some opinions with this.

thx

PS>>> I assure you this is NOT a pirated version.

The slower the better quality it will be. I burned mine at 20x and it works fine.
