Nero 7.2.3.2b (trial version) only burns at max?

I am trying this software out and in both Nero Burning ROM and Nero Express, it is not allowing me to burn at anything other than the maximum for the media, the other options don’t scroll down, “maximum” is shaded. Am I doing something wrong here or is the trial version like that? I am using a DW1650 and Fujifilm (MIJ) media and I am not getting good CD burns at the maximum speed (I usually burn at 8x using another version of Nero Express).

Nero has nothing to do in determining your burning speed your burning speed (even max speed) depends on your burner drive firmware.

Do you have any other burning programs where you do have a choice of speeds for that media? Do you burn at 8X with the other version of Nero with that same media?
