This could be due to software writing to the System's registry thus limiting the drive to 4x.
Also, some motherboards and ATAPI CD/DVD rom drives can be limited by physical jumpers
on the drive or by a poorly written device driver that doesn't support that maximum
write capability of the drive. I would start by finding the original driver for the device
and installing it in Safe Mode and see if this does the trick.
