Description Chris Kloiber 2001-02-15 00:42:36 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.17-14 i686)

I was making coasters at the rated speed of my HP 9500 CD/RW drive, so I
decided to try a slower setting. I quickly discovered that while you can
specify either higher or lower speeds, the setting is often ignored. I thus
started a bunch of -dummy burns with increasing speed= parameters to see
what values appear to work and which don't:

Requested:   	Actual:
1		2
2		2
3		2
4		4
5		4
6		4
7		4
8		8
9		8
10		8
11		8
12		12

No number above 12 works faster than 12. (I tried up to 32) Since burners
can be purchased with speeds of 10 and 16 (maybe higher) I consider this a
bug worthy of squashing.

Reproducible: Always

while this would be nice, I'm not going to do it. The reason: I have no idea how
this works, do not understand SCSI, and do not have time or test machines.

I suggest contacting the upstream authors on this one.
