Same here. I have no use for those programs. Without even knowing it, that app (DLA) must have been doing something in the background. Funny thing is, all my other DVD burners worked fine. The BenQ was where it all started. Now that DLA is gone so is my BSOD issue. I would never have known had it not been for the fact the BenQ didn't like operating with it.
One thing I noticed - don't know what it means but...
When the other burners (NEC & TEAC) are being accessed, the computer's pointer has a disk next to it during the busy time (indicating disc access). With the BenQ, it shows the hour glass instead - like during a normal app startup. Could this be related to the issue? More of a curiosity than a pressing need to know, but I find it interesting anyway.
