Default CD Writer

I have a CD Writer (QSI CDRW/DVD SBW242U) And it should read at at least 24x and write at 24x. Problem is it reads at 4.1x and write at about 16x.. Im not sure wats wrong with it? PLEASE HELP ME!

Whats even worse is Alcohol 120% reports it can read at 12x and write at 24x, now im not too sure on this but dont drives generally read faster than they write?
