The discs are Datawrite DVD-R 8x, but they will only write at 2x. I believe they should write at 4x with this burner, and the last batch I had, which were 4x, did write at the correct speed. I have some Arita DVD+RW which write at the correct speed of 2.4x, and CD's write OK at 40x. The packaging on the Datawrites says 8x, as does the disc, but Kprobe says 2x. I've spent a couple of hours looking around this forum but I'm no wiser as to whether I've been stung, or whether there's a problem with my burner. Can anyone put me out of my misery - painlessly?
