I have burned a dvdr with the Benq. The only thing i noticed during burning is "device buffer" showed steady at 86%, my other drives tend to stay around 98%.
First I acanned the burned disc (a Falcon Pro Silver TTH02) with one of my Optiarcs. it showed a slight bit worse than usual for that disc, but playable (see below).
I am currently scanning it with the Benq. on my first attempt, nero gave an error that i didn't write down, something about a "Server Focus error". It is now scanning, but only at 0.10x. At this rate the scan will have finished by morning (I set scan speed at maximum!).
Please don't tell me that forum members find a 12+ hour scan acceptable........... PLEASE??!
Back to my original ?, is this likely a firmware issue, a bad drive or is a 0.10x scan speed really nature of the beast for this drive on dvd's?
The ebay seller did an awful packing job, 2 light wraps of bubble wrap put in a priority mail thin cardboard ENVELOPE.
If the Benq scan ever gets done, i will post both it & the Optiarc 7200-S scan of the same disc.
