I have 8x media in an 8x burner that only burns at 4x. What gives?
The media is Verbatim DVD+R DL in a spindle of 20 (purple package) from Newegg.
The burner is a Lite-On SHM-165P6S that supports 8x DVD+R9 (DL) burning. I am using Easy Media Creator to burn the disc. I may have tried other apps (such as dvddecrypter), not sure at the moment though.
The Lite-On firmware is up-to-date and everything is working fine. I use several burning apps, several media types, at several speeds and everything else works fine. Any thoughts?
