Hey all, I tried to find the answer to my question in searches from earlier threads, but I just don't seem to be able to So I figured I'd put up a new thread. One of the selling points of my current, latest revision 12 inch powerbooks was the claim, by Apple, that the superdrives they've thrown into the powerbooks could burn up to 8x. So...I went to burn a DVD right now and it only gave me the option of 1x speed or maximum. And so I put it on maximum, but clearly, maximum is not 8x speed because this is just taking forever to burn...it's burning at about the rate my old one did...which is...oh...1x. When I tried to set it to max, I noticed that the console log in my system profiler said "requested dvd burn speed was 47x, actual burn speed is 1x." This just seems odd. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I.e., what does your show when you burn a DVD? Is this just how it is or, the most probable scenario, am I missing something? Thanks for the input in advance!
