    I have a 32x10x40x Lite-On that was only showing 24X (even with 32x media)... I tried everything and finally updated the firmware to the latest one which came out like 3 days ago. Well now the drive only shows 4X and 8X write speeds. I ran the drive test and that didn't fix anything. I'm using CD Creator 5 with the new 5.1 updates. anyone know what to do now?

    I had the same problem.I think the problem is with creator 5.
    Install nero,Thats what I did and now I can see 4x all the way to 32x.

    you have to be kidding me!!! there were 700 times more cd creator incompatibilities then any other program on XP! sorry had to let that out, I have yet to encounter a problem with nero from the version that came with my drive up to the newest 5.5.8.0

    LOL, YOU'RE RIGHT

    I actually put in a CD and the thing jumped to 32X no problem with Creator 5. The new patch is working great.
