Longten 4X Burning @ 2X

I have an Lg 4040B, and i have some crappy longten 4X Media… but it’s being limited to 2X, any idea why?

The reason might be your crappy longten 4X Media :wink:

According to many comments in CD/DVD-forums the quality of LongTen DVDs
is below average and causes many compatibility problems :confused:

I would not use these DVDs for any important data…

the drive sets available burn speeds for the media that’s in the drive. so LG has determined that 2x is the max for that media.
Just like CDR media, the rating on the package does not necessarily match what the media will do in your particular drive.
