Yes, they do. All modern CD-RW drives adjust writing speed to match the media. That's why I said "My gut reaction is that your drive is simply slowing down to 40x to write to media that it is having some trouble writing to at 48x. That is perfectly normal operation. "
As Action Jackson said, you can see for yourself in Ian's review
. There is a table about 2/3 down the page with different burn times for different media with the same rated speeds. Ian explains that Optimum Write Speed Control determines the best speed to write to the media.
Sometimes new firmware will improve media compatibility, so you might want to update to the latest. Otherwise, switch to a more favorable media for your drive. See the media compatibility thread
. By the way, you didn't answer my question about whether you have changed media and what media you are using.
