    I just installed a Sony DW-U14A Burner on my Sony
    Vaio RX470DS.

    Loaded up Nero and the only DVD burn speed available is 2.4x (DVD+R?)

    Did I not set the jumpers correctly?

    I would like to be able to burn in both DVD-R and +R formats as well
    as be able to chose between 1x-4x speeds.

    I should note that I can select any speed from 4x to 24x when burning

    Any help would be greatlly appreciated!

    Depending on when the unit was manufactured, you may need to do a
    Firmware update to get full speed dvd write functionality.

    Found this interesting too:

  3. When you put media in the drive, it's going to limit your choices to
    what the media will support.

    best to check the media can be burnt at 4X a lot of older media will only
    burn at 2X. I bought some DVD-R the other week thinking they would be OK at
    4X, but alas i had the same problem as you! they take twice as long to
    burn!! More fool me for not reading the label!
