The media (the CDRW itself) might not support faster than 4x.

Also try looking under options in the writing software as you can often change write speeds there.

When you hit the record button you can chage the speed on the next screen.

Also check under Tools menu, CD Drive Properties and highlight the CDRW and check the speed there.

As i said sometime some media will only allow you to burn at slower speeds too.
