Gigabyte GO-W1616A problem

The problem I have is very simple, but I have no clue how to fix it. The specifications of the drive claim that it can burn DVD-R’s from 1x to 16x, but when I put a blank disc in, all my burning software programs only allow me to choose from 6x, 8x, 12x and 16x. Any idea why?

That’s just the way it is :slight_smile: . Discs can be 1-16X compatible, but drives aren’t. They choose a set of available speeds for each disc type.
