Cendyne 48x12x50x. can only burn at 24x

My drive is the acer drive updated to 1.04 firmware. I am trying to burn at greter than 24x but can’t. I put my CD in (Taiyo Yudens) and it says can’t burn at 48x. Only 24x. Why can’t I go above 24x?

Another computer of mine has liteon 32x and can burn the same disks at 32x. Is there something I can do?

Thanks.

Is there something I can do?

Sorry , you’ll have to get some media that is rated for higher speed.

OK. But what I don’t understand is why the exact same media will burn at 32x on the liteon?

Perfectly possible. Some writers are pickier with media than others. Might be that it will be solved by a firmware upgrade in the future.
