    I have a 15" PB with superdrive (4x). When I tried burning a dvd (4x) today, finder doesn't give me the option of burning the dvd at 4x. It only allows me to choose between 1x and 2x. Anyone seen this before?

    BTW, the dvd-R media that I am using is from Hypermedia.

    I would double check two things.

    1. Your media supports 4x
    2. You actually have a 4x Superdrive, these are only on the newest rev powerbooks.

    If you find you don't have a 4x drive, you could always try this hack - it will void your warranty.
