DVD-RW 4x certified media supports ONLY 4x drives (not 1-4 drives ?!)

I bought 1 5-pack “4x certified DVD-RW”.
Before opening it I notice that it says on the box:

“This media is for use in DVD-RW 4x drives …
Earlier DVD-R/RW drives require a firmware upgrade” !!!

My drive is Liteon LDW-811S: (+) 8x 4x (-) 4x 2x (so -RW 2x)
I have got the latest firmware,
but this firmware is not for upgrading to -RW 4x

I wonder why the DVD-RW pack does not simply say: “Max. 4x” or “1-4x” :confused:
so I fear my -RW 2x drive does not support the “only 4x certified DVD-RW” media.

Can I use these “only 4x” Verbatim DVD-RW on my -RW 2x drive , or not ?
Please help ! :cool:

Until now about 20 people read my question, nobody answered yet.
In the meantime I have found the answer myself, … to whom it concerns !
