Well I just bought a BENQ DW1610 from futureshop today, as I had a feeling my Pioneer 105 was dying.
I am not impressed with this BENQ drive at all! First of all I can’t write at any speed lower then 4x. This is no good for PS2 backups at all! My ps2 can’t read discs burned at this high of a speed.
Secondly, and most important… I can’t read any discs that I burn with it! I just tried burning a data DVD and then reading it in the same drive. It doesn’t recognize the disc at all!
I thought it might be because it’s showing as a CD Drive in windows explorer so I tried a real DVD. It recognizes it and plays it fine.
So… has anyone else had problems like this? I’ll be returning this drive very soon if I can’t get them sorted out.
