Forcing Drives to Burn Media at Higher Speeds

I have a Toshiba SD-R5112 (firmware 1033) that’s giving me problems. It refuses to burn Ritek G05 DVD-R media faster than 1x when I’m using Nero

Is there a way to force the drive to burn at 4x?

Does Nero let you burn other media faster than 1x? Trial or otherwise restricted versions of Nero have been known to restrict burning speeds.

If it is not Nero’s fault, then your drive firmware doesn’t support the RITEKG05 media type properly. In which case, you should see about getting a newer firmware.
