I just got a Benq DW-1640 OEM delivered from Newegg to replace my trusty Pioneer DVR-108 running Nil’s hacked frimware.
Since the drive included nothing but the drive and Nero OEM, I went to the BENQ global site to get info on jumpering the drive as Master, the BSKB firmware, QSuite and anything else that looked useful that I could find… However everything for the 1640 seems to require a User ID and Password…
I tried to do due diligence by reading the 1640 threads here before buying the drive but don’t remember this being mentioned. Is it something new? Hopefully it’s just a webmaster’s screwup… I tried with both Firefox and IE.
I’ve managed to find everything but the 1640 manual by searching the BENQ English sites in other countries. Does anyone know where I can get the manual? If you’re willing to e mail it, PM me and I’ll reply with my e mail.
I think I’ve found the correct setting to configure the drive as Master on another thread here. I’ve moved the jumper from the middle position as received to the far right location (looking at the back of the drive). If anyone can confirm that quickly, I’d appreciate it although I’m probably going to try it that way soon.
