Writing DVD-R is terribly slow. While displaying 16x writing speed it take 1.5 hours to record DVD-R in Nero. DVD+R works fine (4x burns at 4x in 15 min, or so). I have tested with two different DVD-R media and it’s the same effect. Is it a problem anyone is aware of?
I have upgraded firmware to B7T9 (I have retail unit, bought in FutureShop). Did not help. BenQ brand DVD-R media rated 8x is accepted by the burner as 16x, but while displaying burning speed 16x in reality it is taking 90 minutes (2.4x?). I have also tried burning in supplied RecordNow Deluxe software and at lower burn speed - that did not help.
I bought 100 BenQ DVD-Rs as I was sure that BenQ burner would burn BenQ media, what do I do now? My friend who bought the same model (1620) says he has the same problem with -Rs. It is supposed to be 16x DVD-R burner! This media is listed as supported by the burner. What is happening here?
Anyone knows what the problem is and can be done? BenQ media is made by Sony I think…
