PLEASE HELP :a
I am at my witts end with this. No matter what l do my Benq burner (1650: BCFC RPC1) will not burn any media above 4x.
I have tried different burning programs (nero, imgburn, dvd decrypter) all with the same results and also 3 different firmwares (orig, BCHC and BCFC).
Have tried with different configs through Qsuite also.
I am using TY media (G02?) from the same 100pc batch as l have been using for the last 6 months and they have been perfect, unitl now. Also, l bought some +r (MCC 03) verbatims and also some -r MCC02 verbatims and experience the same problems - definately not media!
I have ran diagnostics on both the harddrives and defrag'd too to make sure quality of source isnt an issue.
Checked voltages on mboard all seems right.
My next steps are to check RAM. Could it be a power supply issue? Like, the PS not giving enough power to Benq to write at 8x? (Just brainstorming here). My recently departed NEC DVDRW drive got a "power calibration error" when burning and l was told it was in the process of dying so l turfed it for the Benq - this error however does not appear..... it simply just gets I/O errors on verify after burn.
I would be grateful for any help anyone can give.
