Benq 1620 (b7t9) burns MCC004 only at 8x

vbimport

#1

hi…

just tried the expansive Verbatim 16x DVD+R (MCC 004), but my Benq only writes at 8x… before, i only used cheap 8x CMC MAG-E01-00

original firmware, nothing modified, win2000, DMA on, Iso createrd with DVDDecryptor.

tried writing with DVD-Decryptor:
set to max write speed: wrote at 8x
set to 16x write speed: wrote at 4x (???)

tried writing with Nero 6.6.0.6:
set to 16x write speed: Write Error, almost at the beginning (after leadin, fuck, put it in trash…)

writing with k3b (linux):
set to max write speed: wrote at 8x

any ideas??

tryed a ‘create Data CD’ in CDspeed…

one more coaster… and an expensive one…




#3

Either you got a bad batch of MCC004, or your drive is faulty.


#4

Try reflashing your firmware.


#5

The system may not be capable of delivery data at 16X write speed. How fast is the CPU? How much RAM? Download HDTUNE and post a picture of your hard drive performance.


#6

Thats what I thought too, but his example above failed at 5.8X. That may be a different problem

BTW, what is your burst rate. May have something to do with the limited burn speed.


#7

thought that too…
tested HDD-speed with Sandra in Windows: 40 MB/s read…


Benchmark Breakdown
Buffered Read : 40 MB/s
Sequential Read : 45 MB/s
Random Read : 32 MB/s
Buffered Write : 47 MB/s
Sequential Write : 45 MB/s
Random Write : 34 MB/s
Average Access Time : 9 ms (estimated)

with hdparm under linux: 52 MB/s.
should be enough to deliver the 22MB/s for 16x write.

got a Athlon 1,4 GHz, with 512 MB ram…

wich burst rate? burst read from benq? will try. but i can rip DVDs with up to 16x with my tosh 1802… so the Via-Ide (onboard) should ba cappable of transferring the data fast enough. Benq is master on secoundary IDE. with 80pin IDE-cable. as only drive. Liteon CDRW and Tosh DVD on primary IDE. HDD attached to the onboard-raid (Highpoint).

#8

reflashed the drive, before doing the DSpeed-Write-test

hmmm…
burst rate of only 19 MB/s with a DVD+r in drive. havn’t got a pressed DVD here at the moment… 19MB would be too slow for 16x writing but at least 12x should be possible…

my tosh and my liteon on the same controller give me 21 MB/s burst rate.

#9

here is a scan of one burnt with 8x…

doesnt look tooo bad…



#10

did one wore test… see for yourself…

only 4x…

i hope it is realy a bad batch… will go for other 16x DVD+r tomorrow. which one are good for the benq? Sony 16x?

axc27




#11

Why don’t you load and post a picture of your HD transfer speed using HDTUNE? It’s free!


#12

The media and drive look good. Sound like a HD throughput issue with your HD.


#13

i thought the values given above would say enough…

this does not explain why my benq writes the MCC 004 with different write speeds or even produces coasters.

with the CMC i burned 24 DVD+R at 8x. without any problem or coaster.

the Verbatim give me write error (= coasters) or burn sometimes at 8x sometimes at 4x. this has nothing to do with the HD throughput.

this has to do with the combination of my benq and the Verbatim i use.
but as i read, the 1620 should work fine with the Verbatim. so it either has to do with my burner or with the media.

#14

HD speed is good. Perhaps reflashing to the latest firmware? You certain could exchange the 16X media.


#15

It could have something to do with the Via IDE controller-drivers. I don’t have one so I haven’t gave the threads that discuss this much thought. I’m sure someone on here clue you in on theinfo.


#16

ok. the Verbatim i have here are crap.

bought some RICOH 16x today. Smartscan says 16x not recomended, but they burn fine at 16. ok in the quality-test you can see, that 12x would be better for these DVDs. but at least it’ not my Benq and not my system.

what did i learn:
i will not buy these expensive verbatim again. even the noname Platinum (CMC, see above) brun reliably at rated speed. and the expensive verbatim produce coasters, or burn only at 4x or 8x…

#17

Bring back the Verbatim…the store should exchange the media for you.


#18

I have to agree … you may have got a bad batch. Verbatim has to do sth about their qc as well as some others - like Sony, had bad media from them as well.

That should not happen with that expensive media, though. I have a spindle of DVD-R 8x from Verbatim. The 1st third was fine, burned at 8x (even 12x but I stayed with 8x) and read well in my laptop. The 2nd burned at 8x as well but either immediately or after some weeks was not working in my laptop anymore. Now I burn them at 4x and they are ok again - but not the quality one would expect for the $$$.


#19

After all - verbatim/Mitsubishi media is made by many different manufacturers…

Prodisc, CMC Magnetics, Moser Baer India and their own factory in Singapore.

All 16x media should be made by either CMC in taiwan og MCC in Singapore.


#20

Before you take back the media to the store, could you tell us where is that batch from? “Made in …?”
Thanks
