Digital Pacific 48125W Lite On

I got this drive a month ago and it works great on most media. However, when i tried some CD-Rs made by sony, I can only burn at 24x even though it’s rated at 40x in smart burn. The CMC Imation CDs i’ve tried will work at full 48x speed. This is not an overclocked CDRW either. PLease help. Is it just that Lite On’s don’t like the Sony cdrs?

Using the Smart utility:

This Disc is designed for CD-RW/COMBO Drive Only.
Disc Type, Material = CD-R, Phthalocyanine
ATIP Lead-in = 97m 24s 15f
Norminal Capacity = 702.83MB (79m 59s 74f)
Disc Manufacturer maybe = SONY(40X)
SMART-BURN Speed Limit = 40X

Any help please? Anyone used Sony 40x CDRs before that are not TY?

Avoid Sony’s CDR (expept older made by TY and some limited made in Austria) . In combination with Liteon not able burn in label’s speed ,except some new (?) 48x . But not data errors in all cases…
