Incorrect writing speed

I am using CloneCD 4.2.0.2 and using this drive
Manufacturer: HL-DT-ST
Product: CD-RW GCE-8240B
Revision: 1.07
My problem is that clone cd won’t burn at the speed I select, it always burns around 8x even though I select 2x. I know that the slowest my drive burns is 2x. Can someone please help?
Oh, I am running Windows XP home edition in case you need to know.

The LG GCE range (OEM) are shockers. Here’s some discussion about them. Buy yourself another burner. Any other LG, LITEON, ASUS, Plex Premium. Buy an ASUS for can-do-all.
