i’ve thrown everything i got at this problem and i’m close to giving up…
1st: when burning my hdd red light stays constantly on and i notice the buffer level going up and down in nero. also i don’t understand why is there so much paging. same problem for cds and dvds. the benq is master on one end of an 80way ide ribbon cable and my ricoh cdrw is a slave on the same channel. my really old cdrw makes better cd burns than the benq.
2nd: disc quality scans are really slow. also i don’t like the results.
3rd: the benq drive isn’t recognised as benq in nero (or windows) but the ricoh drive is. the third drive is a virtual drive (i had daemon tools)
4th: uninstalled the secondary, primary channels and the controller (several times) to make sure dma is enabled. defragged my hdd and flashed the 1620 in windows safe mode and still the same results.
5th: dvd media are infiniti 16x rated dvd-r mcc 03rg20 burned @ 4x. firmware is g7v9.
i think it might be a defective unit
