Can't change write speed on 1633S to 1x?

Hey, hope someon can help me out with this !!. I’ve got a Lite-On SOHW-1633S with firmware version BSOS. I don’t know what’s going on, but for some reason, whenever I try to burn anything with Nero, Alcohol 120% or with DVD Shrink, I can never change the write speed on the damn thing. It’s always defaulted to Max or @ 4x. I wanna lower that down to 1x but can’t do so. I’m using Princo 4x media and when I burn ps2 games to them, they either won’t run or will skip A LOT. I was going to try lowering the write speed to 1x figuring maybe since they’re cheapo dvd’s I should try 1x but I can’t change the speed. Problem is, the option to change the write speed is always greyed out. Is it cuz of the media I’m using. Is there some limitation…or is it a problem with my writer ??

As for burning with DVD Decrypter, I can chose to burn at 1x, but once burning starts, it shoots back up to 4x on its’ own. I just keep making new coasters.
I know that with 4x media you can’t burn faster, but shouldn’t I normally be able to burn at a LOWER write speed ???

Anyone know why I can’t lower my burn speed ??? Please help !!! I recently bought this dvd writer and already considering getting a new one.

By the way, in case the problem’s with the Princo 4x DVD-R’s i’m using, does anyone know where I can get Ritek G04’s up here in Montreal, Canada ???

Looked around and can’t find them anywhere !!
