As DrageMester mentions, this is normal, this drives can't write CDR at lower speeds.
But why on earth do you want to burn your CDRs at lower speeds than 8X? :eek: - if it's from the same old song that "the lower the speed = the better the quality", welcome to the real world, this is an uninformed or obsolete advice. Nowadays, most CDR media, in modern burners, burns best (including jitter levels) between 12X and 32X. With some media and burners, you can even go up to 40X without any drop in burning quality.
And frankly, I'm extremely thankful for that! :bigsmile:
Now if it's with DVDR, that's another story! Would you mind clearing this point?
