Here’s what happens despite ‘Ignore ATIP-info even for CD-RW’ is checked.
Valid for the 4x and 12x CD-RW media respectively :
REMARK: “OLD” CD-RW - MAXIMUM SPEED 4 TIMES!
You have inserted an “old” CD-RW into the CD-writer “[0, 0, 0] (L) LITE-ON - LTR-52246S”.
This CD can be written at with at maximum 4 times (instead of 24 times).
The maximum speed (24 times) can only be reached, when you’re using so-called “High-Speed-CD-RWs” (labeled with 4x-10x).
These “High-Speed-CD-RWs” are produced physically different - so it is NOT possible, to burn “old” CD-RWs with higher speeds (resp. if it would be possible, the burned CD wouldn’t be able to be read).
So the speed-selection-list has been modified by Feurio!, i.e. you can only select a speed, that is supported by this “old” CD-RW (i.e. at maximum 4 times) - as soon as you insert a “High-Speed-CD-RW” you’ll be able to select the maximum speed of 24 times!
REMARK: THE WRITER HAS REDUCED THE MAXIMUM SPEED!
The CD-writer “[0, 0, 0] (L) LITE-ON - LTR-52246S” can normally write Rewritable CDs (CD-RWs) with up to 24 times.
But after analysing the inserted blank, the writer has reduced the speed to 12 times.
So Feurio! has modified the speed-selection-list, so that you can only select a speed, that the writer supports with the inserted blank.
This is a process, that is controlled INTERNALLY by the writer - Feurio! can’t change this.
Feurio! just asks the writer: “Which speed do you support at maximum with the inserted blank?”, and the writer reported:“12 times”.
Even if Feurio! would let you select a higher speed (24 times), this would be useless, since the writer nevertheless would reduce the speed internally and would burn only with 12 times.
Since this process is as said controlled INTERNALLY by the writer we also cannot say, why the writer has reduced the speed - most probably the writer has analysed the inserted blank and has decided (with an internal table or due to some parameters stored on the blank), that for this blank only a speed of 12 times is possible.
If you want to know details, why the writer has reduced the speed for this type of blank, you should contact the vendor of your writer - only the vendor can tell you the detailed reasons for this.
In most cases this problem can be resolved by using blanks, that are certificated for the speed you want to use.
In addition, also an update of the firmware of the writer can also help in this case.
[B]"…writer nevertheless would reduce the speed internally and would burn only with 12 times
…that for this blank only a speed of 12 times is possible.
So, you cannot jump over your head anyway !
