Okay, this is a weird situation. I was using Nero 126.96.36.199 and wanted to see if using different burning software would change the quality of the disc. So I decided to use Sonic RecordNow 7.21 and noticed a change in quality. So I decided to burn a DVD+R ProDisc-R03-03 at 8x w/Nero 6.6.03 and it's taking forever. After like 10 minutes of it "finishing up" I try to shut down Nero. No avail. I try everything I can do get it to stop burning. So the only thing I am left to do is to shut down the computer with the power button. So I do that. Next thing I know my CMOS is completly cleared and I have to reset everything.
Now when I am burning I get worse results than I have had before. I've tried everything. Flashing firmware to the G7's. Using CVT or the supplied EXE from BenQ. I even flashed it with the B7L9 in Safe Mode and reflashing it to B7P9/B7T9. Now most of my burns are decent quality, 92-97. But anytime I use a ProDisc-R03-03, I get some horrible results, either an extremly high PIE with a huge spike at the end and what not.
I'm thinking of just sending back the ProDisc-R03-03s and getting a refund with their 30 day gaurantee and maybe trying something else. Or should I just exchange my drive because it's defective?
