    I have a Philips DVD8801 burner, 16x Burner.
    When I burn a DVD at 8x (TDK 8x DVD+R), it really only burns at 4x.
    But when I burn at 16x (TDK 16x DVD+R), it burns at 2x..

    The Drives are set to DMA Enabled.

    Dell XPS 600
    Intel 3.46ghz Extreme Edition
    2gb Ram
    2-320gb drives (Raid 0)
    Dual Nvidia 7900 GTX 512mb SLI Mode

    Anyone have an idea as to why this is happening ??

    First I would suggest trying some verbatim media.

    I made a mistake on the 8x media.
    They are TDK's not Memorex...

    I will pickup some verbatim media today and see what happens..
