BenQ DW1620 problems reading

Hey guys.

I was wondering if you guys could help me out here.

I finally bought myself a DVD writer after a year worth of prolonging it. Anyways, I wanted to see if it would work with my already recording DVD-r media.

The issue is, I had borrowed my friends dvd writer (LG) and written a ton of stuff on dvd media, and I can read it on my laptop, her dvd burner, and my dad’s dvd reader. But when I pop it into my BenQ, it doesnt read a thing… is also tells me that I have 4.3GB of FREE space!

What should I do? Thanks

edit: great, im trying my cd-r media. im watching *.avi files that were burnt on to it. and after 3 mins, it skips onto the next *.avi file!


Hi and be welcome aboard!

Does this writer read pressed discs without a problem? Or do similar problems occur?
If you experience identical problems there, we can assume that your media are ok. If not, it might be a firemware related issue…

Please test this and report back, so we can help you out :slight_smile:
