Hello everyone, I'm Having a Hell of a time burning double layer dvd's.
My history with burning dvd DL's begain with using a Benq DQ60 burner, & using RIDATA DVD DL + R. I know that Ridata may not be the best brand of media,but I don't think that it is the worst. First off, I have never had a problem burning single layers period, ONLY DOUBLE LAYERS. I have wasted so much money trying to burn DL's that it makes me sick !(I could have bought the dammm movies, that I've been trying to copy). I made sure that I had the latest firmware for the benq dq 60(MREC), & it gave me 80 % coasters after using 25 ridata DL +R's.
I returned my Benq DQ60 in excange for the Benq DW 1655, & upgraded the firmware to 1st BCDB, & then to BCGB. I'll put it like this, I seem to be having a little better luck with the Benq DW1655 alternating between firmwares BCDB & BCGB, but I'm still getting more coaster than I thought I would using my new Benq 1655. My latest DL movie to attempt to burn is King Kong. I burned 2 copies, 1 with BCDB & 1 with BCGB, & guess what, 2 more coasters.They both freeze at the exact same place, (when it changes over to the 2nd layer). Now I may be a little slow,after using up almost 3-25 packs of Ridata DL +R's(75 DISK's)@ about $52.00 per pack, is that they all seem to start skipping & or freezing when it changes over to start burning on the 2nd LAYER. This has been the case for both my DQ60 & my DW1655. Like I said, I seem to be Having better luck with the DW1655,but I'm still getting way to many coasters.
I hope that one of my fellow burner buddies in here can give me some suggestions for my expensive problem.
In Qsuite: I have solidburn on default, & WOPC on default.
Looking forward to some expert opinions.
