Default Why doesn't my DVD burner write at max speed?

I have a Liteon DVD burner and I find when burning CD's it does not burn as fast as it could. The DVD burner is rated to write at up to 52x. However it never does. Now I understand discs have a maximum limitation but those limitations are not being reached. For example I often burn music on CD-RW's. The CD-RW's I burn it on is rated to write at 12x. However when I choose "maximum burn speed" in Nero it only writes at 10x. I have some CD-R's that are rated for 48x write speed. However only 8x and 16x shows up in Nero for speed options when burning to the CD. So why is the burner not burning as fast as it could?
