    A me-too:

    I used to have (until I sold it) an Octek 688 8x speed CDROM, which
    was systematically identified as 2x speed:

    hdd: OTI-SCYLLA, ATAPI CDROM drive
    hdd: ATAPI 2X CDROM drive w/240kB Cache

    Which was obviously wrong. I think the speed detection code doesn't
    work much reliably - there are CDROMs that either report wrong speed,
    or none at all I guess.
