851s - bookset didn't work - ricoh 4x burns only at 4x

Hi, This is my first post.

Got a new liteon 851s . Upgraded the firmware to GS0C.

Burned a memorax +R 4x disc(Ricoh). I have following issues.

Book set tool changed the setting succesfuly to DVD-ROM before
burning.

Used DVD shrink with nero 6.3.0.2 to burn the disk.
Burn speed is at 4x only ???

After succesful burn book set tool says its DVD+R.

Don’t know what other things I have to take care of. Drive is
secondary master with DMA on.

I have attached kprobe results.

The booktype tool still knows that it’s a DVD+R disc. Use DVDInfoPro to see what the booktype is.

If you can find 1.0.0 you can use that. Check this thread http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=89129

Unless you have the hacked FW for the 851s, you won’t be burning this media at 8x.

Is it for every media or just some media for 8x burning?
