I got a Aopen DUW 1608/ARR VA03e a year ago as a gift. I had a ton of 4X DVD+R's to get through so I haven't tried burning at a higher speed than 4X until recently.

According to these specs I should be able to write at 16X DVD+R.

I'm trying with both 8X DVD+R media and 16X, but my Nero still only gives me 4X as the ONLY speed option when I try to burn.

I'm using
Nero 7.0 Premium
and tried both maxell 8X DVD+R and Ridata 16X DVD+R

Any tips?
