    It seems your choices are to wait for a new firmware release that will enable 4x writing on the 8x discs you are having problems with, or return the discs where you bought them. Sorry.

  3. Your burner likely simply doesn't recognize the Media code, so it's defaulting to the slowest burning speed, 2.4x. Unless there's a firmware upgrade that includes these media codes, you'll be stuck at 2.4x with this media.
