After reading CD Freaks review of the BenQ I knew I had to have one. I quickly ran to my sisters room, busted open her piggy bank, then tied her up drugged her, and sold one of her kidneys on the black market.
Finally I had the money for my drive.
I quickly went on ebay and purchased this drive:
Now unaware of the fact it was a ‘Bulk’ type drive at the time I went along my merry way.
Now my question to you is; the bulk drives use a different firmware from the Benq branded 1620 drives. The bulk use a G7ZX firmware while the BenQ branded drives use B7TX. The faceplates are also different, I’m not sure about the internals.
So my question is, can I flash the drive using the BenQ brand firmware (b7Tx) and get the 4x dual layer write speed? Or am I just SOL for being so stupid and overlooking that it was a bulk drive.
