How come the only choices are(over 4x) 4x,8x and 16x . It would be nice to have something like 12x inbetween 8 and 16x.
it is nothing linked to the software. the firmware of the dvd burner contains a list of available speed for a specific media ( detected by media ID ) .. so .. the speed list depends on the media and firmware / drive.the software onlys displays the list of speed available by the drive.
I thought that might be the case but the speed settings are the same for Benq 1620, Nec3500 and Btc 1108, Sony 510UL.
it may have something to do with the fact that 12X is an uncertified speed.
Maybe the media you are using does not support 12xUsing 16x Philips C16 media I have 12X available.
That could very well be the problem. I have used only 8x media. (TY,MCC003, Sony D11, some CMC mag stuff)
