#1

Hi to all.

I have BenQ DVD DUAL DW 1610 ( firmware B8V9 )

On the drive box says that he can write dual dvd discs.
Today I bought 2 DL-disc:

Philips DVD + R DL 8.5Gb 8x
Intenso DVD + R DL 8.5Gb 8x

Both disk drive is not recognized as drives, that is does not see them.

What to do?

Drive read any DVD DL (8,5 Gb) before.
Why it not see free DVD DL (8,5 Gb) disc ?

You have an ancient drive, it does NOT recognize the DVD+R9 discs because there is no burning strategy in the firmware. Reading any authored DL discs is different than writing to blanks.

Your options are:

  1. Use MKM001 media, which the 1610 should recognize it.
  2. Get a new drive.

Welcome to CDF’s:

The BenQ 1610 is not a DL burner! It can[B]NOT[/B] be cross flashed to a 1600 or a 1620 either.
