GSA-4082B only burns at 2x?

Hi guys,
I just got a GSA-4082B (after getting rid of a BTC 4X). I am using ThinkXtra 4X DVD-R media. In the BTC 4X i was able to burn at 4X now with this LG GSA-4082B i can only burn at 2x.
I suspected the media quality, but a check with DVD Identifier and it says :


Unique Disc Identifier : [DVD-R:VDSPMSAB 01]

Disc Type : [DVD-R]
Manufacturer ID : [VDSPMSAB 01]
Manufacturer Name : [Interaxia AG]
Disc Application Code : [Unrestricted Use : Consumer Purpose]
Recording Speeds : [1x , 2x , 4x] (8x Cannot Be Detected)
Blank Disc Capacity : [2,298,496 Sectors = 4,489.3MB = 4.38GB (4.71GB)]

[DVD Identifier - http://DVD.Identifier.CDfreaks.com]

and in the section “Drive Capabilities” it gives this information:

** INFO : An Empty Writable Disc Is Recommended For Accurate Results
** INFO : Drive = HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4082B [FW A204]
** INFO : Write Capabilities = DVD+R DVD+RW DVD-R DVD-RW DVD-RAM

** INFO : MODE SENSE Write Speed Descriptor(s) [Legacy Command]

i used the Nero CD-DVD Speed and it gives this information:

I would really appreciate if u could tell me what’s going on. Thanks guys

I own a 4082B. It does not like media with write strategy different than the max write descriptor like the ones you are showing. Buy true X4 media, they are not expensive today.

And use DVDinfoPro. It is much more friendly.

They are sold at a very low price. The factories are owned probably by overseas Chinese.

The discs tested here with both Lite-On and GSA-4120B had a lot of unreadable sectors.
