I have a retail benq 1620 with firmware B7U9. Running it in a shuttle SB75s system with a P4 2.4C and 1gb of RAM.
I get extremely inconsistent burns with Ridata branded Ritek R03 media. I got a 100 pack of these media, and while max PIF is almost always below 8, the average PIE can vary from 25 one one disc to 300 on the next!
I have tried firmwares B7S9, B7T9, and B7U9, and all give similarly inconsistent results.
I always run Qscan before burning, and the scans look pretty inconsistent too. Quality control issue with the media? Any ideas?
