i have a optorite cdrw-5202. the nero program, alchlol 120% reads the cd burner has capable of burning at 4 x-52 x. problem is everytime i slap in a cd media to burn, it jumps up to 12 x. it won't go down to 4 x. i tried different media, verbatim, memorex, tdk, and sony. all does the same thing. right now i am about to throw the cd burner away!. (hence the reason on buying a plextor premium burner, which is on its way). but my question is why doesn't it want to burn at 4x even though its capable of burning at 4x. even on its site it says its capable of burning at 4x up, and the burning software picks it up at 4x and up. but soon has i slap in a cd-r media it jumps up to 12x and up. and won't go down. how can i make it jump back down to 4x to burn on cd-r media.
