This can happen
Authored by: deleted_user18 on Feb 14, '03 12:13:54PM

Firmware of optical drives knows about certain media-types and best way how to handle them. If one media provies to have problems with 2x it might be labeled 1x in the next firmware update.

Also DVD drives only burn media-brands they know 4x or 2x. If the media is unkown the default to 1x.

There are patches around to change this. But as I think the manufacturer of a DVD drives knows what he does he probably has a good reason.
