Windows 7: Nero 9 in Windows 7 has problems detecting drive speed?

Nero 9 in Windows 7 has problems detecting drive speed?

Has anyone else noticed that Nero 9 in Windows 7, even the latest update, when you are burning a disc has a problem detecting what speed the disc should use?
At first, I thought it was a problem with my DVD burner in my laptop, it was only allowing me to choose 4X speeds when my drive supports 8X speeds maximum.
Then, I thought it was the media that I was using.... nope, it's 16X media so it should support 8X speeds easily.

I've narrowed it down to two problems: either Nero 9 has a 'bug' in it when used with Windows 7 and it isn't detecting the drive speed correctly (now confirmed by using it's 'settings' options to see what it is detecting the maximum drive write speed as, it's only listed as 4X) or the drive isn't detecting that the media is 16X media (this has been disproven now by taking the drive out of one computer and putting it in another and getting full speeds in Vista 64-bit with Nero 9's latest update).

This is a severe problem, and I was wondering if I should contact Nero and tell them about this, or since Windows 7 is still in the "RC" stage, wait until the ACTUAL Windows 7 comes out and then inform them of this issue.
