cdrecord will only burn speed 4 not above?..


hi, i have a preety new burner and it is capable of 40x but if i try anything above speed=4 it will just 'ignore' it or there was perhaps a problem and it just goes to write in 4x:
'Starting to write CD/DVD at speed 4 in real TAO mode for single session.'
so if i tried speed=8 speed=40 speed=32 whatever it still does 4 and thats really slow takes like 30mins for a cd, when i was on windows id burn it at 40x and it would take 5mins so it indeed working fine (but i dont use windows at all anymore) ,
any ideas on why it inists on speed 4 and not anymore? thanks.
btw burner is a:
0,0,0 0) 'MITSUMI ' 'CR-48XCTE ' '1.0C' Removable CD-ROM

hmm even if it i put it lower speed=2 it will do speed 4 as wel..

Another place that cdrecord gets its speed information is from the CDR_SPEED variable. Type in:
echo $CDR_SPEED
and see if it is set to 4. You want CDR_SPEED set to null. Then cdrecord will pick up the maximum speed from the drive.

Question(s) even more stupid: Are the media encoded with their max-speed? Is that checked by firmware or software?
