[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On LDW-411S/451S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I bought a Memorex 16x DVD+R spindle. DVD Identifier says they are RICOHJPN R03. The 411S is a 4X writer. But when I put this media in my drive, Nero only has the option to burn at 2.4x. DVD Identifier also says that the combination of drive and disc will result in 2.4x maximum speed. Why is this? The media supposedly supports 4x.
I don’t know if it matters but DVD Identifier was not able to use Method 1 for the query, it only worked for Method 2. I used a blank disc for it. My firmware is FS0K.
The DMA setting in device manager is DMA 2 (Ultra 33). Note that I can burn CDs at full speed (40X).
Is this just a compatibility quirk or is there something wrong with my config?
