Unable to record full speed on some DVDs

I have the NEC 2500 8x recorder and can record at full (8x) speed on TDK, Fuji and Sony disks. However I recently bought 15 packs of Memorex and Philips 1x-8x disks at Office Depot and cannot record faster than 4x. I have tested these disks with DVD Identifyer and they do check out as 1x-8x disks.

Any thoughts as to why these two brands will not record at full speed?

Yo-

Sounds like the limits placed on the medias record speed by the firmwares reading of the MID codes on the discs-

This may be solved with a firmware upgrade or not IMO-
