MY old CD packed up so I bought myself the latest Sony DWD22A multilayer writer.
It states that it will write DVDR 8x,DVDRW 4X,DVD+R 16x,. I bought a DVD+R 16x disk & it will only write at around 3x, also a DVDRW diskstates on it that it is 2,4x.
Can someone explain to me why the speeds are so much lower that states.

Is your PC up to the minimum specs for the DVDW ?

The specification says a pentium 3 and mine is an athlone 1800 rated at 1500.Shop said it should be okay.

I think the software usally sets it to the best speed to copy without making a coaster. What program are you using to burn ?
