K3b and inspiron 1100: only 4x writing?


Is anyone w/ an insprion 1100 cdrw/dvd able to write at more than 4x? i have the most recent K3b cd writing program but it won't let me go past 4x. i supposedly have 48x cd-r's that burn at 16x in windows. thanks.

hi,

you can set the maximum write speed of your writer manually using k3b setup - go to the 'settings' menu.

i don't can't find it. TOOLS-->CONFIGURE K3B OR TOOLS-->K3B SETUP doesn't seem to have a spot for me to enter it. please let me know sequences to click.

usually, just when you are about to burn your cd, manually set the speed in the dialog (it says "auto" in the speed box by default)

yeah...but the auto only writes at 4x, and the manual speed only goes up to 4x....weird.

i don't know which version of k3b you're running; i'm using 0.10, and the setting you want is under the 'settings' menu (in k3b itself), click on 'configure k3b'. a writer settings panel should appear; click on the 'devices' icon, and go to your writer device - you should then find an entry for the maximum write speed.

note that you really do need to set the speed here before going any further - when you actually go to burn a disk, you can alter write speed, but only up to the maximum selected in the k3b setup panel.

My wife has an 1100 and only one of the USB ports is 2.0, the other is 1.1 (at least windos xp thinks so) so depending on which port we plug the writer in it will only run at 4x
