Is it normal for the BenQ DW1620 to blink red and green while writing? Or should it blink red all the time?
If it constantly blinks red and green while writing I believe you have a problem with the media you are using. Try different media, see if it still happends.
While reading, the drive should blink green.
While writing , the drive should blink red.
Would a few green flashes every now and then still be ok? Even with this constand red/green blinking the disk is still usable - but probably not for long. It is realy cheap crappy media I have atm, doesn’t even have a media code :o
It blinks greeen when there is a slow down in the burning caused by something. Are you doing something thats slowing down your machine while burning?
Its the buffer under run kicking in if theres a problem and like said when it adjust the burn with the WOPC it’ll do that also, so if it’s just every so often just the drive slowing for a sec to adjust itself to the media basicly.
Do a test burn in Nero sometime and watch the graph and see what the light does
