I've got a TEAC DV-W58E(8X DVD+R/4X +RW)that SHOULD burn 8X DVD+Rs at an 8X speed but it only burns them at a 4X speed. I've checked the manufacturer website for any new firmware upgrades and there currently are no firmware updates for this model and the technical support rep indicated that this drive should burn 8X blank +R dvds at an 8X speed. He recommended that I purchase Memorex 8X DVD+R media. I purchased Memorex and the drive still only burns at 4X. I'm using DeCrypter for all my burning- could that be the problem? Is it possible the drive would burn at 8X speeds if I used Nero? I'm open to any and all suggestions on this matter. Thanks!! P.S. Sorry about initially posting this question in the wrong forum.
