[quote=morisato;2082056]i have 2 benq1640s that are semi dead /dead. if someone is able to repair drives or wants them for Disecting all i request is you pay postage… One is a sony rebadged benq which i crossflashed to 1640, another is a 1640 Both have issues burning disks at proper speeds often slowing to 1 or 2 speed. also can get errors ripping disks. that any other drive has none Sometimes they just plain refuse to acknowledge the discs exist as well So i have decided to either Bury them in my backyard:) or give them to someone who might ressucitate them
Long Live The benq![/quote] I bet there is nothing wrong with your drives, have you changed the IDE ribbon?
