Default Bad dvd burner??

When I go to burn DVD's now, it burns at 1.0x instead of 16x like it should. It's taking over an hour for a 4 gig burn?? Any ideas? This happens with Nero and Alcohol 120%.

My drive did this. Get a firmware update, it upped my average burn rate from about 2.5x to about 12x.

If you want a follow up to any of my posts, use the 'Quote' feature. I believe this should notify me of your further enquiry. If not, just send me a message.
