My Teac dv-w58e is supposed to write at 8x speeds, but so far 4x is all I get. How can I maximize my write speed? Windows xp. Thanks

What software are you using to burn with? What speed are the CD's (perhaps they are only 4x cd's)?

using nero. the disks are 16x dv+r (it does say rw on the disk, I wonder if that is making it run slower)

if you have nero then you should be able to set your drive speeds or configure your drive. i know that when i installed nero with my first cd burner i had to configure the drive speeds. it should be in the extras tab on newer versions of nero.

Here are the specs on your burner:

Pressed SL DVD-ROM Read - 5X to 12X (CAV)
Pressed DL DVD-ROM, DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW Read - 3.3X to 8X(CAV)
Pressed Data CD, CD-R, CD-RW Read - 17.2X to 40X (CAV)
CD-DA - 4X (CLV)
DAE - 17.2X to 40X (CAV)
DVD+R Write - 6X to 8X (ZCLV)
DVD+RW Write - 4X (CLV)
CD-R Write - 16X to 32X (ZCLV)
MS CD-RW Write - 4X (CLV)
HS CD-RW Write - 10X (CLV)
US CD-RW Write - 16X (CLV)

As you can see, in some cases 4x is all the writing speed you are going to get. I guess we need more details on exactly what type of CDs you are using. As a rule, RWs burn very slowly. Rs are much faster (in your case up to 32x).

Also, BlackSpyder is correct. There is a way to adjust the burning speed with NERO. Look closely at every window you are shown as you set up the burn to find this selection. However, as I said, in some cases 4x may be all you are going to get, depending on what media you are using.
